Stencils

Recommended Posts

so ive seen a decent amount of stencil work here @ 12oz. I searched but there isnt a designated thread, so... here it is.

 

Dont come in here just hating and dissing stenciling. Lets try to keep the graff v. stenciling arguments down to a minimum. if u cant stand stencils then just stay out. remember that there are plenty of graff artists who do stencils and/or incorporate them into their own work. DAIM and BORF are widely regarded as great graff artists and both use stencils to one extent or another. DAIM often uses them to sign his work and the front cover of his new book is a stencil. Granted, BORF is not an amazing graff artist, but no one can deny that he gets up both through stencils and tags. There are also many highly regarded stencil artists in the graff community who do not write but are respected as being masters of their art form: BANKSY, Logan Hicks, HAHA, NEMO, and many others like them. (i know im forgetting lots of stencil artists so add 'em if u want)

 

remember: to each his own

 

'nuff said.

 

 

here are some of mine. i recently finished two pieces but i sent them off to a show before i took pics of them so all i have left are these crappy old ones.... oh well. i will get some street pics as soon as i get time and get my camera working again.

not bad hana. its a good start. i would suggest using some spray adhesive to prevent all that nasty underspray. in my opinion, stencils look better when they are sprayed on the streets rather than on stickers but i realize that putting up stickers is much easier and can usually be done during daylight. work on ur cuts too. see if u can get them more detailed and cleaner.

 

if ur into stencils, u should check out www.stencilrevolution.com

 

the forum and gallery is down right now because thet're changing servers or something but it should be back up in a few days. @ SR u can find some good tutorials and advice/tips. the gallery is a good place to showcase work and receive crit as well.

 

peace

Just gettin into the stencil game after 15 years of writing graff.

 

How do you get all of those dimensions in your stencils, do you

 

use multi layered stencils. What type of material are you using.

 

My friend has a vynal cutter he hooked me up with vynal sticker paper.

 

The only one I have done thats any good I used construction paper &

 

duct tape, kinda crude but it works. Give me some hints anyone.

 

That stripe gremlin is dope did you layer that or stencil the primary

 

colors then use markers to give it dimension, help a brotha out.

first of all, check www.stencilrevoltion.com for some tutorials. the forum is down right now but u can get advice/tips when it is back up.

 

the dimensions are from layering (multi layered stencils). u usually create a layer for each color, sometimes several layers are needed for one color depending on the complexity of the image.

 

 

if u wanted i suppose that u could just add the "dimensions" with a paint marker but that would kinda defeat the purpose of stenciling. if ur gonna do that you may as well just draw the whole thing.

 

there are many different ways of making a stencil. many use photoshop and there are different techniques that can be used to get different results and u can alter how many layers and colors. i have always done it the old school way, this is taking a black and white image, and using a pencil, pen, and white out/paint marker creaing the layers on ur own. this, i find, gives u more control over the final result of ur stencil, but takes alot longer. i admit though, the lantern was done in photoshop just as a quickie stencil and it turned out pretty well. (i followed the SR tutorials). until recently i had not owned photoshop so as soon as i got it i was anxious to do a stencil with it. the lantern was the result. if u cant afford ps or dont want to pirate it. then microsoft word and microsoft paint can be use, atleast for one layer stencils. i have never done stencils this way but it can be done, im just not sure how.

 

materials: most people use acetate or cardstock. some use vinyl but it seems like it would difficult to cut? there are many different opinions on whether cardstock or acetate is better. it is really up to the individual. i do my stencils the old school way, scan them into my computer, enlarge 'em, and print 'em off with this HUGE printer i have (it prints 22 in. wide). or u could just take the image to kinkos and hace the enlarging/copying done there. i print off one copy for each layer and cut the individual layers out of each copy. when done on normal paper, stencil will not hold up very long so if i want to be able to reuse one, i then trace it onto cardstock and cut it out. i know its alot but it is usually worht all the work.

 

use spray adhesive to apply the stencils to prevent any nasty underspray. u spray some of the stuff on the back of the stencil, slap it up on the wall, spray ur paint, and the peel the stencil off.

 

the best way to learn is experimenting on ur own. doing this will help u understand layering and what works/doesnt work for u.

Do you use any type of clear coat on the stencil before

 

applying paint to prevent it from soaking up all of the paint and

 

tearing or ripping, this is what I herd the vynal was good for, I used

 

duct tape, It was still hard to hit up and throw it in a trash bag and hit

 

multiple spots.. Any advice I thought about laminating them after they

 

were cut. Im trying to bomb with these not just hit one or two spots.

 

Any advice would be appreciated. What do you keep big stencils in

 

while they are wet to prevent folding or ripping while bombing????Xacto

 

the best cutting tool ive came across for intricate stuff, box cutters work

 

too for bigger cuts. Any onez got any pointers 4 me....

acetate would probably be the best stuff for what u wanna do. vinyl would work too.

 

to transport big stencils make them so that they are foldable or roll 'em up into a tube or something of the like.
