    How-To: Stencils on T-Shirts

    Posted by russellh on Tuesday, September 28, 2004 - 02:30 PM

    A few people have asked Stencil Archive for tips and info on spray painting stencils on t-shirts. Some tips I've given them are mostly screen printing tips:

    - use a flat palate (piece of wood, glass, or even marble) to keep the shirt flat
    - make a mark in the middle of the palate so you can center your shirt
    - maybe use spray tack to keep the shirt from moving
    - put the shirts out in the sun or in the dryer to cure the paint
    - if you want tight lines, practice improves your skills

    I've heard from others that painting on shirts is just as good as pro inked jobs. Not much fading or just enough to make the shirt look old and worn.

    If anybody has any tips on stenciling t-shirts, your comments would be helpful

    i use normal sheets of printer paper, then i either print out my stencil, then cut around it, or make a sketch, then cut around that. then i use that normal material paint that you can find at like art stores and shit, then i dab it with a sponge. it might sound a little gay, but if you're patient then you can get a shirt to look real nice and clean.

    it really depends on the paint you use. Iused some shitty paint to spray paint a t-shirt and after about the third wash the whole thing was nearly invisible

    how to stencil a shirt
    1. find a stencil in your friends ecko &#33;&#33;Shoe Box&#33;&#33;
    2. take a can of Flat Black and put a Fat Cap on it
    3.Spray it on the shirt...in a back and fourth motion starting from the side side to side..

    there you go&#33;&#33;&#33;

    dont use spray paint.
    just get some fabric paint whatever colors you want.

    lay the stencil, you really dont need anything to hold it as long as it on sometihng flat.
    then get a small roller, i used a 4 inch
    then roll, if your doing a light color you might need a few coats on a dark shirt.
    after it drys, you can use a hair dryer. put a peice of parchment paper over top of it and go over it with an iron, this will keep the paint from fading and from washing out in the machine.
    thats, it really easy heres one i did for a friend.

    use screen printing fabric ink, it's what you use when making shirts normally, you have to heat seal it with an iron afterwords

    i usually make my t-shirts with roller, it's fast and easy just make sure you have enough paint, and once i did t-shirt with artline 3cm wide black marker
    and it has stayed for over twenty washes with washingmachine. If i do freehand stuff to fabrics i tighten it into sewingframe(dont know if thats the right word).
    i dont have signature... Wait , yes i do!

    i print a stencil on regular printer paper then i put a piece of freezer paper over it and trace the image then cut it out only on the freezer paper. then i get my shirt and iron the freezer paper on so it sort of sticks to the shirt so it doesnt move around and ruin the shirt then i just use acrylic paint and roll it over the stencil and then wait till it dries then i take the stencil off and i got a shirt.
