Making stencils?
« on: September 04, 2009, 10:04:33 AM »
How do you make that shit? Checked the grip art thread, everybody posts these sick-ass things and I freehand some fuckin' stick figures.

If anybody actually gives me a real answer, I'd be psyched.

find an image of whatever you want to stencil.
print it on thick paper or card stock.
cut it out with a exacto knife.
spray away.

There's mad tutorials on youtube. It's easiest if you have photoshop.

Basically, you make whatever image you want to use black and white then mess with levels/contrast until you have enough difference to make it viable.

Make sure you have bridges so that none of your uncut parts are not attached to the rest of the paper. And don't use card stock, shit is thick. Go to the art store and buy a sheet of Mylar. It's like $5 and thinner and more durable than cardstock.

Make sure your exacto is sharp. That's it. You might fuck up the first one you try because it can get confusing when you're trying to figure out what to cut and what not to cut. But it ain't too hard.

Good luck.

Just take your time when you do it. I guess you'll have plenty of time to make stencils while you're getting anally raped in juvie though.

Okay, here's how to do it.

Go here
http://www.spraypaintstencils.com/a-zstencils.html

find something you like and print it out
Go to any Michaels craft store and
buy blank stencil paper (it's like a thin plastic, called mylar)


trace the picture onto the plastic paper with a fine point sharpie
Then you're gonna have buy a stencil cutter for around 10 bucks cause a sharpie will not work.


And next go buy a bunch of blank skateboards
and spray away!
