Leave it all to dry overnight and don't be tempted to peel the stencil off early. This will make sure that no paint bleeds and you a crisp line.

I ironed some freezer paper onto the back too (inside the tshirt) to be 100% sure that none went through to to the back.

I got better results if you dab the paint on rather than 'paint' with brush strokes.

Good luck. I really enjoyed making ours!

Try not to apply the paint too thickly around the edges. If you do then the stencil sometimes sticks under the paint and you get torn bits of paper underneath the paint which is hard to get off :-? It does come out in the wash, but affects the crispness of the edges iygwim. Definitely put something between the front and back of the t-shirt so it doesn't bleed through. Take your time and make sure you have cut all the details out from the stencil, sometimes things that you think are going to look great are let down by lack of detail as they just end up looking like blobs once the stencil comes off :giggle:

Most of all, have fun :wine: I find it so relaxing to do, got loads in the pipeline for xmas pressies :D

You can use any picture you want, just make sure its in silhouette so you get the picture and not just the outline :giggle: I did a google image search for what i wanted and then silhouette, and found loads :wink:
