I have finally gotten around to posting these. I use wax paper and fabric paint for my stencils. All of these are designed by me, if for any reason you'd like them I can post/send you the jpg.
This one says baum, it's German for tree. My Germ 2 teacher liked it, a lot.
My friend is completely in love with Alex Kapranos, of Franz Ferdinand fame, so I made her a shirt for her birthday. The colors are off though, it's really periwinkle with white paint.
And finally, one of the first stencils I ever did. This one was done the day of the last show ever played by Solemite, so it's not real detailed. They were a really great band from a nearby city, Oakland. The "S" is their logo, kind of, and those are some of their lyrics that fit the situation perfectly. My sister made one along the same lines, different words and stuff though, the band loved them both.
Back, just the band name, it was centered between the shoulders.
