I was just wondering - is there any way to stencil onto a cast?

I broke my ankle, and I really want to put Danny Phantom on my cast, but  I don't draw and don't know anybody who does. So I thought maybe I can stencil it on. Any ideas or suggestions as to how I'd go about doing that?

On Ohmystars Net Craft:

Thereis a tutorial for making stencils.  You need to be careful what you use to put onto your cast - I broke my upper arm when I was 11 & ended up in a full arm cast.  First day home from hospital, my friend & I coloured the entire thing in with very smelly permanent markers, and the cast disintegrated!

No idea what would be good to put on it though!  Good luck with it and the healing - I hope it doesn't itch too much - a chopstick down the sides works wonders Wink though probably isn't good!

I've stenciled before - only shirts, though. I know how to make the stencil, I just don't know what to make it out of. I've only ever used freezer paper, and I don't think that would work well on a cast, lol.

But thank you for attempting to help - and for that wonderful chopstick idea. I've been using pens and stuff, but  chopsticks sound like they will go down farther, haha.

*grins* No problem!

I've broken my wrist twice, my upper arm once and my collarbone once - I've probably spent months in plaster, and I used to keep a chopstick tucked inside my sling Grin

I can see the problem of making an appropriate stencil - you'd need something sturdy that could bend - maybe laminating your chosen image then cutting it might work.  I've hd laminating done at Staples before now.

I've never tried this before, but maybe you could print the stencil on a full sheet of sticker paper, cut the parts out, peel and stick the paper to the cast (and around the curves or whatever) and paint/color the stencil? I don't know...
