Testing .... ink and stencils

I think I'm going to print images using stencils. The stencils I'm making are made using thin plastic …. like the plastic in a 3 hole punch page envelope. After a trial I've found that Speedball Fabric Screen Printing Ink seems to work best. You apply a warm iron after the printing for 5 mins to fix it. Although how many times do you wash an apron? I'm using a sponge brush rather than a stipple brush. The latter seems to pull up the fabric. I'm such a novice at this! … perhaps I should be spray glueing things down.
