Has anyone ever stenciled on satin? or heard anything about it?
I wear boxers under my school uniform so if the wind blows i don't flash my undies..... but the problem is, my brothers also wear boxers and when people try and sort the washing, everyone gets confused. so i thought maybe if i  could stencil on them i could end the confusion and have fun....but i've never stenciled or painted on satin, so i was wondering if anyone had and recommedations or advice or anything Huh
thanks. Kiss

Well, seeing as i dont think anyone did  know about stenciling on satin, I'm just posting this to say: i threw caution (and small scraps of fabric) to the wind, and i just did it! I worked fine, but was easier to smudge...not bleed, just.. those tiny blobs of paint that i get on my fingers that dont affect other types of material, well, the satin found them and held on. So what i mean is - wipe your hands lots. And also, dont make the paint too think, or else the fabric goes stiff. But also, dont make it too super runny, or else it bleeds everywhere. Lol, hard to get the paint right, isnt it!?

Thanks for thowing caution to the wind and giving it a go. I'd been looking for alternatives to the regular cotton and such for stenciling on. Now I know HEY, that fabulous satin handbag I got at the thrifty will hold paint if I do it just right!

THank you Fudgegirl!

I'm glad i could help someone! I recommend practising on some scrap satin, and i used a glue to hold my stencil down - but thats just because i dont have freezer paper where i am - so, you could try with freezer paper, and let me (and all the other craftsters) know how that goes!

Thanks Fudgegirl for trying this out for us - I've read plenty of posts about women stencilling boxers for their other halves, but they all seem to be using cotton boxers, and my guy only wears satin.
Now I can't wait to give this a try!

I realize this post is old, but I figured I would post my results anyway!

I am making my prom dress this year (ivory satin) and needed to stencil on a pattern, so I used freezer paper stencils and mixed some black acrylic paint with black fabric dye (about 50/50) and painted over the stencil, let it dry, peeled it back, and VOILA! Fabulous stencil work!  It did bleed a tad once or twice but only if the freezer paper wasn't ironed down well, so it was easy to compensate for.   

And although this post was started nearly five years ago, hopefully this helps someone, lol.  Grin

One year later, this helped me! I'm getting married on Friday and just got a white satin robe that I want to stencil "Mrs. Aragon" onto. Thank you!
