    Just wondering Can I use spray paint on t-shirts to make a stencil. Ive got my design and the proper paint but spray paint always looks better because of the splater effects. Will it come off in the wash or will it stay?

    Why don't you just do silkscreening? You can make whatever design you want, and it'll come out better than some stencil. Unless, of course, you're really into mallpunk and want that DIY look.

    I used Monster Colors Montana and Fabric Paint. The spray looked hand-made but the fabric paint looked like i bought it.

    You can paint really clean stencils on fabric if you iron everything out and put a board under the layer you're spraying on. I think different colors will have different longevity in the washer and dryer though, and the fabric blend of the shirt could affect this as well.

    For example, with a polyester / cotton shirt, the toluene & other solvents in the spray paint will probably melt the poly to some degree before it evaporates and the paint should bond to it better than it will pure cotton. I have a stenciled cheap white poly/cotton shirt that was sprayed around 9 months ago and washed countless times and has not faded or decayed yet. This was with el-cheapo dollar store black gloss paint.
