Default painting surfaces

Hi all,

I have a human model whose shirt I want to have a number on (like a football jersey or something) What is the easiest way to do this and how? I have toyed with creating text (such as bevel) in maya and trying to mould it to the model but as soon as i start moving vertices etc it starts losing its shape and looking crap. Is there a tool to paint it on?

Thanks
Dave

your best option would be to use uv texturing
there are plenty of tutorials on this all over the net this is the most common way of texturing
