Thanks Sherlew I just put the 2nd coat of paint over the 2nd stencil. One of my worries was that exposed paint from a prior stenciling would melt and stick to the bottom of my iron when ironing on the next stencil and ruin it but that didn't happen and I did iron over exposed paint. I am very pleased with the colors and everything so far. Tomorrow I will peel off the second stencil then test the marker.
Here is the test T-shirt. Expand the image and tell me what you think? So far I think the marker is working out great for bringing things together. There is some BAD bleeding flares on his shoes. I will have to try hard not to get them in the future.
Also, my husband has just pointed out that it would have been a good idea to ask permission before using the image on a tee shirt, since it's used in a different way than they have set up. I'm not able to find any contact information, but maybe leaving an inquiry in the comments below the image would work. Offering to add their website address on the shirt and stating the fact that it's just for your own personal use would be good.

I am designing my Space Invaders T-shirt now. I am about 1/2 done. It will take 2 stencils but will be done in a different way then Juggle Boy which took 4 overlapping stencils. These stencils will be side by side and only overlap enough to line up things

Here's Juggle Boy! If you don't look to close he's OK. I drew his face better on the test shirt. I think the color T-shirt I put him on is turquoise. I tried to get a lighter green paint and didn't read the bottle well enough. I didn't see that it said NEON and it has glitter in it which it doesn't say at all.
