    I just discovered this website www.stencilrevolution.com

    this girl at my school has done a couple. shes a really good artist, but all kinda dark subject matter. she even made a couple tshirts with them.

    another friend of mine really got into graffiti recently. he showed me the site of this crazy local artist... its pretty inspiring.


    go for it.

    this is sweet.. I made a mouse pad just now. The cutting is a bitch. This one took me 35 minutes to cut after i made the vector in illustrator.

    The paint is still drying. thats the dark spots around her arms. I used spray paint for this.. It was hard though because it kept blowing the stencil up when i was trying to paint.

    I've recently got into stencils. I made a shirt for myself awhile back with acrylic and some textile medium (so it stays on the shirt better/longer).

    This week I just completed a three panel piece for our place. Here's how it turned out, sorry for the shitty picture quality, hopefully getting a digi SLR some time after xmas :x:

    That is not too bad. I'd imagine cutting the shape out or making one that would work in a stencil would be the hardest part, but you did a pretty good job. :p

    you should make multiple stencils like the garden state guy, with new colors to add dimension ot the body. dont forget updates, i really like the figure.

    thanks. Looks like you got the technique down, layered stencils shouldn't be too hard. Lining em up when you stencil is probably the hardest part, besides getting xacto finger from cutting so many damn stencils.

    I just finished a Snow Patrol (music group) stencil, I'll have to get a picture to post up in here :cool:

    the shirt are def. badass if you can get a good image. I've seen one with bear being hung in a noose running from the neck area, ones with guns at the hip, designs in the corners, random paint splashes. they are cool. But, you have to by some different paint and a roller. cants spray paint shirts :nono:

    I may have thrown the bunny stencils out in my haste. Ill see if i can find it though, to add some more detail

    can you tell me one thing: how do you cut your multi layer stencils? Do you print out 2 or 3 pictures then cut out the individual areas? Or do you seperate the layers in photoshop and then print them?

    I tried seperating each layer in PS, then they changed sizes and wouldnt line up for some reason.:squint:

    i would print the same image X times (depending on how many layers) and jsut cut the certain section on each one.. that way you have some sort of a reference while stenciling and also so that they dont change size or orientation at all.

    Kpac0 about multilayered stencils, I did what redna just said basically. I had 4 different laminated sheets with the same image on each and then just cut one color out of each one. The sort of tricky part is thinking in what order you are going to spray em on and how it'll work. So when I figured that out I wrote 1-4 on the corner so I wouldn't have to think about it later.

    if you have an image with more than one layer you should be able to work that out just by looking at it.

    For example, in this file: http://hotdogavalanche.com/stencil.jpg

    I did Black > Dark Grey > Light Grey > White.

    I'm sure there's more than one way to do it, you just have to have some sort of gameplan while doing it so you don't cover an area you dont mean to on accident. Like I almost did, I had to hold a piece over the nose so it wouldn't get covered by the dark grey, which means I should of done dark grey then black, but it worked.

    I've been getting into this. Did my first two.
    First one: Bettie Page(mostly test one on old shirt. I think it came out ok)
    [​IMG]

    2nd one: Music Pirate logo. :)
    I really like the way it came out. On a long sleeve t-shirt type.
    Its not painted even, but gives it an instant faded look.
