    hey, ive been painting for about the year now, and i was planning on trying some stenciling this year. ive dont a search for it on the forum and read most the threads, but im still not sure about a few things...


    that's the pic im planning on doing first, not sure if there's too much detail or not? also im not sure how to do part's where its and island with nothing around it, like the nose piece and the left cannister on the mask, i did hear about using mesh but wouldn't that leave a pattern across the whole piece? any help appreciated

    hopefully tha pik is better than tha scan is...

    but say that whole white sheet its on was your stencil...

    i would cut out the 'white' parts in the face/mask area... and there you would have it...

    or cut out the black either way... whatever you cut out black/white tha other will be left behind when you paint it...

    Thats a lot of detyail to cut out...i have done some fairly intricate stencils in the past and the more detail the more the prioccess will piss you off...but go for it man.

    Does this post belong on this forum? It doesnt really fit with the other forums so i guess its allright.:eek:

    best shit for stenciling would be an overhead projector sheet and a butane frisket cutter...
    if you dont have that try any thick paper or board, and an exacto knife
    just cut out the white parts, or if theres a "floating" part just use your artisitic ability and connect it somehow so it looks good
    thats it
    have fun stenciling

    The best shit to use make a stencil would be an art accessory called ulano....It's very thin and used to make very very intricate stencils.....Your pic would be a cakewalk with it.....You should be able to pick some up at your local artstore or whatever....Kinda pricy, but worth it....Just tape it over your pic, and cut it out with a small razor or boxcuter...

    i've found that doing layers works best for detailed shit. yours is pretty simple though, so you'll only need 2 layers... cut out the black part on one board, then cut out all the white on another board... that way you don't only have to do the basic positive/negative space deal... you can play around with colors and shit... so yeah.. layers are good.. try working with em and see what you can do..

    i'm tellin you... layers is what it's all about with the insano stencils.. that one would be a piece of cake with 2 seperate stencils, and it will look just like that... no detail lost... it'll work, i promise.

    a butane frisket cutter is a tool with a super small point that is heated like a btane curling iron, so not only does it cut it melts the frisket so you get really exact cuts. Its most ly for airbrush artists so thats why it came to mind
    look in an airbrush magazine, about $40 plus shipping and handling
