There's a special spray paint for fabric called Simply Spray. I used it on a vintage sofa and it worked great. It's kind of pricey and you need a lot but it really does work.

So idk about dying unless you’re open to a tie dye look but I think if you tape it off in sections you can probably use fabric spray paint for a cleaner look.
This posting on amazon has a lighter blue and a pink but idk if they are exactly the flag colors. But good luck with the project! Don’t listen to that other comment a flag shows you’re proud of who you are! 🥰

i used Elmers brand paint markers like these. I got mine at walmart. they sell medium and fine point and there are several color packs. I use the regular Tulip Soft Fabric Paint for most of the stencil stuff though. I just wasn't quite good enough to paint the detailed lines for the GOT shirt with a paintbrush.

u/sunny_bell · 3 pointsr/lgbt

Well you could use spray dye like this or use regular fabric paint that you brush on. The regular fabric paint is neater and a little easier to control but your shirt will be STIFF as all get out, so the spray might work better, just remember to cover the areas not being colored with paper/painter's tape. Happy crafting!

> Yeah.. Just regular good quality multistrand oxygen free copper is it - anything else is pretty much nonsense.. The right gauge for the right length and power is all that is required. Personally I like the banana plugs that have the screw in terminals - just clamps the copper in place then inserts.. gold plated cost like 2 bucks a piece. Like these

My grandmother always used this type of paint to paint shoes and hats.

u/FidoSkeeterson · 2 pointsr/bleachshirts

Here is an Instructable I made awhile ago documenting the process I used. Jacquard Fabric Paint is what I used for color on this shirt.

I generally use acrylic paint but I wanted to try the UV ones - I got these: . The black light gave me a headache though. lol I might stick to regular acrylic paint

I've used puffy paint pens to label mine before! It will come off if you pick at it but as long as you leave it alone, it stays on for a long time. Just pick a nice contrasting color and you're good to go!

edited: puffy paint pens are actually a little different than what I use, but would still work. I use these 3D paint pens:

I'd recommend an upholstery paint, which is designed to work on unknown fiber content, and will allow the suede nap to remain soft (unlike acrylic paint). Here' an example:

Permanent fabric marker pen - a light colored metallic one would be really nice

u/vwkitty · 1 pointr/tiedye

You could get a can or two of the Tulip ColorShot in Silver Shimmer and give each one a light coat over the gray dye.

u/guchsk8er · 1 pointr/supremeclothing

used this to get rid of the fading on my black vietnam hat. Worked like a charm, its like spray paint, but fabric dye.

u/im_already_gone · 1 pointr/bleachshirts

one of the roller's advantages over the brush is even paint application (meaning, no streaks). on top of having a wider area (usually) so applications are faster.

depending on what type of material you used for the stencil, the methods differ.

if you used a freezer paper stencil, just make sure to iron it well. you can always test the adhesion by pulling/tugging at a corner (no where near the actual stencil of course). my general rule of ironing is that i should be able to go end to end with the iron and not have the iron snag on a corner of the stencil.

i've been using overhead transparencies (for reusable stencils) and i'm using elmers (i think, might be 3m) spray adhesive. i always make sure to apply a good portion of body weight on it by placing a large flat object (tray/book) and pressing on it.

if your stencil shifted, while applying paint, it's probably because there was no adhesive material to actually have the stencil stick to the shirt. just pinning the stencil to a backing isn't enough, especially if you're brushing. the shirt/stencil will (probably) wiggle.

also, if you're using acrylic paint on the fabric, it will fade/chip pretty fast. i'd suggest making the move/adjustment to fabric paint. personally, i'm a big supporter of fabric spray paint.

edit: i'm also a big supporter of several thin layers of paint vs applying it all in one go. it's entirely possible with the stencil you had, if you had let it dry a bit and painted some more white, it could've looked more even.

google rotor riot, print on paper, glue to cardboard, cut out with xacto knife, place on walmart sweater, spray with fabric ink from michaels or amazon ( )

u/youwantmetoeatawhat · 1 pointr/stencils

You are going to want something like this

u/RedditSuxCorpBallz · 1 pointr/crafts

Hmm ok! Found it on amazon too. Sock stop huh? Interesting. Looks kinda good on those gloves. White and thick.

Thanks a lot. This looks pretty good. Considering it.

Though, I thought they would just have clear silicone like they use on these things. There is some and is clear but I want more. For more grip.

u/statsjunkie · 1 pointr/stencils

It looks awesome! So you just used something like this?

u/PartialNecessity · 0 pointsr/DIY

and either 3D print the ring or you could indeed engrave

Alternatively, you could 3D print the ring then use it to make a mold and use a DIY forge to create a legit gold or maybe aluminum version. this could potentially be easier than trying to engrave and would allow for mass production.
