I have finally gotten around to posting these. I use wax paper and fabric paint for my stencils. All of these are designed by me, if for any reason you'd like them I can post/send you the jpg.

This one says baum, it's German for tree. My Germ 2 teacher liked it, a lot.




My friend is completely in love with Alex Kapranos, of Franz Ferdinand fame, so I made her a shirt for her birthday. The colors are off though, it's really periwinkle with white paint.




And finally, one of the first stencils I ever did. This one was done the day of the last show ever played by Solemite, so it's not real detailed. They were a really great band from a nearby city, Oakland. The "S" is their logo, kind of, and those are some of their lyrics that fit the situation perfectly. My sister made one along the same lines, different words and stuff though, the band loved them both.



Back, just the band name, it was centered between the shoulders.

I make the stencil in photoshop, print it, tape it to a cutting mat, tape waxed paper over it, cut out the stencil from the waxed paper, spray the back of the stencil with spray adhesive, stick it to the shirt, and fill it in with a stencil brush and fabric paint. The stencil is one-time use only, but I'm hoping if I can get ahold of some acetate I can make longer lasting ones without much of a difference in technique or outcome. I tried this stencil plastic stuff, but it was really thick and took over 45 minute to cut out one stencil.

Great xD I should make one for my German teacher xD then she'd actually think I could do German.. deutch is suuuch a difficult preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'language...seriously'), I dint think about which gender my words are before I say them Dx hm.. I think mine would say "Christmas tree" instead though.. or something weird.. like toiletpaper.. in deutch..

AAAHHH! I LOVE Solemite! They are totally the most rockin band. I always look forward to them rolling through my town. Kinda sucks though, a lot of our venues are closing. ARG!

Anyway, the shirts are rockin, and I'm totally partial to the Solemite one  Wink
