The biggest problem with conductive paints and inks is that they crack and loose their conductivity on fabric because the surface of fabric is porous and uneven. To print on stretch fabrics is an even bigger issue that might be resolved by combining the paints with flexible materials such as latex, silicone or fabric mediums. Painting on fabrics can lead to some nice results regarding stretch and bend sensing. Also see: Tutorial on painting paper circuits. See above tutorial.
