Stenciling 101

Recommended Posts

banksy uses newspaper a lot of the time. i prefer using large rolles of acetate stuck together - you can get rolls which are about 3ft-1mtre wide. acetate is the way to go.

For smaller stencils you can get those plastic cheap binders with the see through shit in front and put your image under it. Cut that shit out and then pull the plastic off. Put it in the folder and you are good to go. Crisp lines and easy storage, what more can you ask?

my girl showed me that you can go to your locall hospital and ask them for left over x-rays and just use those for stencils. they work wonderful but you need a fresh x-acto everytime you cut one.

Okay here we go guys my question is how the fuck would you spray on a "mulit layer stencil" Like how on banksy site the menu page. Is that just like the negative cut out and the positive. And he lays down the positive side then puts the negative layer over that and sprays it on? Also for big ass stencils how do you guys do it? Just take some big ass sheet of card board and cut it out?

3 parts.

 

1. outline/solid background.

 

2. shadows.

 

3. higlights.

 

in that order.

 

make it by posterizing it in 3 parts in ms photo editor or photoshop whatever. but it takes time, despite its easyness.

if you dont want bridges on your stencil, you can make wire bridges that are either really really thin or just invisble when sprayed, just use hot glue or a pice of tape.

i dont know if that made sense,

ive attempted that but the bridges wont hold up for more than 1 spraying because they get all wet again. on another note, they wont lay flat so when youre carrying them you would have to hold the stencil as is in nothing, then if the bridges fall off then youre screwed unless you have a skinny cap on you that you work reaaalllllllly well with.

Ok quick tip, if you break a bridge you can tape it with some sort of semi strong tape (not duct something like scotch) and recut the piece you messed up on. Make sure you tape up more than just the area you messed up on. Yeh it does make a difference.

i wish it had come out a little more defined, but i think it will look better on a solid backround or with a darker color
