161  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / some stuff i've done (image heavy) on: December 09, 2005 05:14:00 PM
i've been stenciling for a while and lurking around here even longer, but i only recently got around to joining. that having been said, please be gentle!


this is a christmas present for a friend; i'm broke this year so instead of buying people stuff, i'm spending all my money on shirts and paint.


close up


this is on the back of a hoodie, i got impatient and took the freezer paper off too soon so it bled really bad. i'm terrible at cutting words so i thought this font would be easier since there are no islands, but it still came out pretty bad. i'm thinking about covering it up with a patch, or maybe just cleaning it up a bit with a brown sharpie. it reads "like a skull shaped balloon, i believe in us", in case you couldn't tell. The Blood Brothers=Love


harry and the potters! i got inspired after seeing them perform at the NYC public library, so i just enlarged their flyer and started cutting. it would've been perfect, except for that little smudge next to the guitar. oh well.


Death From Abover 1979. i know it looks kind of weird because i cut out the white part instead of the black, so i guess it's an inverted stencil or something.  I'm making this for my friend also, but pink on black so hopefully hers will look better. and also, i realize that the stencil is completely off kilter and the paint is uneven. whatever, it adds character.


my first attempt; i did it on an old shirt, but since it came out halfway decent i sewed it onto some black fabric and made a bag out of it.


oh, Conor. *sigh* this one's uneven also, but i kinda like it.


Belle&Sebastian. Not the best picture, i know. The only problem with this shirt is that people are always staring at my chest, trying to figure out what it says, or if it's in english, or if it's in code or something.

i have a couple of questions also:
1. how do you guys get your lines so dang clean?! i use regular freezer paper and sponge brushes and acrylic paint+fabric medium, but mine never seem to come as clean as i would like.  Sad

2. I'm making a shirt of a white bird on a light blue background, but i want to outline the bird in black. Is there any way to outline it using stencils, or would i just have to use fabric markers? sorry if this is a stupid question, i just wanted to know before i go paint shopping

sorry about blabbing so much, and thanks for looking!

aahahaha that Phil Zimbardo one cracks me up! practically every week we have to watch a Zimardo video in my psychology class, you don't understand how painfully boring they are
the Lupin one is also hilarious
i agree that the Stomata stencil would look best on white, but you could always put it on a white canvas tote or something, since you hate white shirts.
good job!  Smiley

ahahah thanks for making me feel better! i just need a new iron because my current one is literally 10 years old and burns all my precious fabric. plut it's not freezer-paper friendly at all.

I think your iron and my mom's iron need to get married.  Your iron burns everything, and Mom's leaks water every where.  Sounds perfect to me!

oh please, don't even get me started! my iron leaks like a banshee!

great job, those look awesome! i actually like the first one better, but they both look like something non-craftsters would pay at least $30 for
the fact that you actually made them basically means that you're awesome Smiley

you know you're a craftster when instead of asking for a desperately needed mp3 player, or new clothes, or new books for Christmas, this year you ask for a new iron.
sad, but true

I did that last christmas!!  I needed something that would steam press properly, AND get hot enough to set transfers and fabric paint quickly.
It's not sad at all, we're practical and smart stellaxsnake  Cheesy
