So after seeing all the amazing stenciled shirts on here I decided to have a go myself, after finally hunting down freezer paper here in the UK I started cutting Smiley

The first one I made. I made the stencil in Photoshop by adjusting the contrast, I didn't leave any bridges though so I just worked them out as I cut it. I think it turned out pretty well for a first attempt but I was a little impatient painting it and it's bled a bit around the edges.


A Mario one I made for myself, I got the stencil from google. I think this one turned out pretty well.


My favourite one so far, Tank Girl Smiley I made this one for my boyfriend and he loved it. This one took forever though, the stencil was A3 size and it took around 3 hours to cut out. I think it was worth it though, I've just started making another Tank Girl one for me because I love it so much.


I'd love to know what you guys think of them. Thanks for looking.

These are great!  Grin Freezer paper stenciling is so fun. Did you make the tank girl stencil or find it online some place?! I'd LOVE to make one like it. Nicely done.

MizzKodak - Thanks Smiley I've been looking at joining a swap, I just don't have enough posts yet. Nearly there though.

jessiben - Thanks, I hope you have fun making them, they're really addictive I've been obsessively cutting them out since I discovered freezer paper.

You do good work in general, but I especially wanted to mention the Pinky and the Brain stencil. It's just a happy picture. I guess it's the combination of color and your picking a good drawing to stencil-fy.

These are awesome! I love all of them. My sister is a big fan of Tank Girl, so she would adore that shirt, too.
