I'm really fond of transparency paper.  you can spray glue the print out to it and cut straight from there.  When your doen just peel the paper off.  It's really sturdy.  Or if you can just laminate the paper and cut from there.

the best way to figure it out is to experiment with it.  I ruined a bunch of shirts at first.  The ruined shirts still look cool though.

I like to cut into transparency paper.  I'm not sure about the paper you have but it needs to be kind of sturdy so it doesn't curl after the first time you use it.  If  you just print out the image you want and spray glue it to the transparency paper its easy to cut.

spray glue is my best friend!  get some and lightly spray it on the stencil before applying it to ink.  helps keep your edges down.

There are some great tutorials at stencilrevolution.c om  basically i just find a picture I like and alter it in photoshop.  Or you could just print it out and cut straight from it.

BTW the l word rocks!

I use acrylic paint mixed with a textile medium.  They usually sell the textile medium right next to the paint.  It rolls on really well and stays.

This book.  I just photocopied it 18''x18'' and laminated it.  Laminate is way easier to cut and stencil than anything else i've tried so far!

Sorry I don't have a digital copy of the stencil.  I just took a photocopy of the painting and cut right out of that.

Ok, I got this really old Singer sewing machine from a friend.  It's green and very cool.  Though we have no idea how to use the thing.  Does anyone know any sites where I can download the manual for it?   For free?  I can't remember the model number right now.

Hi I'm new here just thought I would post a stencil I made.  We had a project for art class to copy someones work and I decided to do Warhol.  So I stenciled his marilyn and it turned out pretty well.  There are actually quite a few layers but I just used one for the t shirts.  What do you think?

Oh and the other one is supposed to be a polaroid camers.  I'll probably add a little to those.
