so pretty much i bought a brand new WHITE hoodie at walmart for like 10 bucks which is a rip off in my opinion and i wanted to put a stencil on it.
i found this cool website, stencilpunks.mattru nningnaked.com that has TONS of stencils, but the only problem i have is alot of the stencils are rediculously detailed and yeah.
i found the stencil i wanted, and the site said to use freezer paper but i only had wax paper and just used that. cutting out the stencil with a razorblade proved to be a difficult task, it kept ripping! so i said screw it and just tried freehanding it sorta, with acrylic paint and a paintbrush. it was really smudgy so i tried to put bleach pen over it to make it go away!! and i ended up with this:

what. a. mess.
then i discovered SHARPIE. the most obvious solution. and tracing it. but no i had to do things the complicated way and mess it all up first. so heres what it ended up like...

it still pretty much looks horrible but whatever.... looks like stenciling just isnt my forte...

no need to worry! just pretend that is what you were going for all along...

see, its a rancid stencil.  in true punk rock rancid style, you should try and make it look distressed and sketchy around the edges.

Don't give up hope.  I think that you can still save this by making the edges more smudged.

And this is your first stencil you say?  Truthfully, its not bad at all.
But definitely considering investing in some freezer paper.

I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile. I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well. I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave. I will work work to elevate you, just enough to bring you down.

I swear to you that I first looked at the second picture when I saw this post and thought it was supposed to be like that! I literally thought "wow, that looks complicated". So maybe you could add some more jaggedness here and there with your paint and nobody will think it was an accident. Smiley

try to make it more messed up? idk it seems that when you try to recreate an accident it ends up worse... maybe i'll play with some acrylic and see what i can do...

Ok, I gotta ask - what is a sharpie? Smiley

I like the way that turned out - I'd say it suits the feel of the stencil

A Sharpie is a brand of permanent markers. Smiley

I think it could look really good if you go over some of the lines to make them thicker and a bit more jaggedy.
And I don't think you're meant to use wax paper for stencils :\
The stencilpunks site is so awesome.

I think it looks very good! Whenever you wash it, the sharpie may fade, as for the paint. I believe it will look better after its washed, but it does look good now.
