293  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: Steve Buscemi Bleach Stencil on: January 17, 2006 06:18:04 PM
Now I'm thinking I'd like to make a few for Christmas gifts...  Manny Ramirez and Curt Schilling maybe?  But if bleach causes holes in the shirts really easily, should I still give them as gifts?  And also, any tips on making my stencils?

stencils are really easy to make if you have a picture with adequate lighting - meaning, you can't use pictures from your cell phone camera Tongue. i use photoshop pos, i'm pretty sure they have a 30 day trial on their website. just size your picture, make it grayscale, adjust the contrast and brightness, custom convert to b/w, then do a median cut to make the lines nice and smooth.

that way only works with pos, though. not sure about adobe or microsoft word. and, yes, its REALLY hard to make a good stencil in paint.



the bleach stencils look really good. very vintage-y and soft.

a good way to start out the hole is to use a cheesegrater. ha, no, seriously. then you just rough up the edges a bit with fine-grain sandpaper. it makes it a little easier, i think. and if you don't have sandpaper? use that concrete sidewalk in front of your house!

i find it kind of silly that not only does american eagle sell "distressed" jeans for mucho dollars, but they made the tag into a little piece of sandpaper, so you can further destroy them.

it looks like you have a little cape on the back... or is that what you intended?
either way, i like it and i want one now.


ps- i totally have that back to the future poster. except mine's all rolled up because there's nowhere to hang it Sad

this is my first post... so... hi Smiley. i've been lurking here for about two weeks and i must say, i've definitely been inspired by everyone's beautiful work.

i made this skirt out of plain ol' pink fabric and black thread. everything is sewn by hand because my sewing machine is in a different state than i am [[i guess that's what i get for up and running off at randumb]]. its hard to tell in the pictures, but it is a true pink and the stitching is completely exposed.

i just started stenciling. this debbie harry stencil is probably the sixth one i've attempted.

again, sorry about the picture quality - i don't own a digital camera.
