Did you know you can stencil your own fabric
and use it for curtains,
tablecloths, pillows, etc.? When stenciling on fabric, stencil adhesive
as a must. First, tape your ironed fabric to the surface so it doesn't
move around while you stencil. Use stencil brushes, not 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.
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
