I'm wanting to make some shirts for friends and I've never done stenciling before.

I have freezer paper and I'm thinking of doing bleach stencils as well as paint.

I'm confused about bridges.  I want to do this Tiger Army logo for one friend.
Does anyone know how I'd do bridges for that one?  Or do I need to try to simplify that design?

I found this really good tutorial http://www.melissaclifton.com/tutorial-stencila.html but I'm still not quite sure about bridges.  I'm still trying to figure out what sections to cut depending the color of the shirts, etc.

Thanks in advance!! Smiley

it's a tad late but...

personally, i don't like bridges, i don't like how they look, so my solution is to mark my stencil with notches, sort of, to match up, sort of, (like you find in clothing patterns) and when you put the stencil down, just use double stick tape and match up the "notches" as best as you can and paint away.
