I had to try it!
Well my very very creative comrade IndigoTiger from Stitcher's Guild Forum does stenciling on her fabrics, check out her Star Stamp Stencil she made for SCA - see the post Indigo's Stenciled Outfit, along with her latest creation: Cave Horse Stencil....

So here it is Saturday... I've been racking my brain what to do for another piece of my SWAP, and how to incorporate a stencil into it... not coming up with anything the past couple of days. In any event I need to try this out first anyway, to see how the technique works... So I found a great jacket at the store this morning that I thought would be great for my experimentation. So that's off to the washer and I'm off to JA for fabric paint.
They didn't have jacquard brand, so i had to go with the only one they had - hope it isn't too lacking... I chose the "soft matte" version of the paint, and off we went to check out in the lo-o-o-o-o-ng Saturday line :-) but all was well, because on my way out were the Girl Scout Cookies! snagged a handful of boxes of those to share at the office and DH's favorite for him.
So here we go on our adventure. Here is the planned design:
