look stunning on your accent wall or done as an allover pattern in an

secure the stencil, but for beginners it may be helpful to mist a
stencil with spray adhesive just to make sure you get great results.When
stenciling on fabric,
stencil adhesive is very helpful. First, tape your
ironed fabric to the surface so it doesn't move around while you
stencil. Use stencil brushes, or dense foam roller, and add some textile medium (
sold in craft stores) to your acrylic paint. You can also get a special
fabric paint, but, frankly, good craft acrylics with a dollop of
textile medium work just as well, and cost way less too! :) Let the
stenciled image dry completely, 24 hours is best, then heat-set it by
ironing the fabric for about 20 sec. ( more or less) on a LOW setting
through the piece of cloth. Heat-setting will cure the paint and will
prevent it from being washed off in the washing machine. A dollop of textile medium makes the dried paint more soft and flexible. Always
experiment with a sample of your fabric first to ensure good results.
I've stenciled on silk, cotton, linen and even sheer fabrics with great
results. It's always better if your fabric doesn't have too much
