I'm a Star wars nerd so I thought it'd be awesome to have a R2D2 shirt. This is only my 3rd stencil and it was pain to cut out. It bled like crazy but it looks ok becasue on some spots it looks intentional. i think next time I will try freezer paper, I hear that works real well.

I put R2 in the bottom left of the shirt and he's about 9inchs tall.

Then i stenciled Star Wars on the bottom of my sleve

Fabulous!  Grin

Freezer paper is awesome for preventing paint bleed, but you're right. The soft edges kind of work for R2. It looks more like a free-hand painting of him rather than a typical image. I like it!

freezer paper is AMAZING for stenciling

but I think the little bleeding on this shirt looks good, like it's meant to be that way

Holy crap, I don't think I'd have the patience to cut all those lines. Turned out great though

Thank you so much.

I really need to start using freezer paper.

And yeah there was a ton of detail to cut out and it took over a hour but it was so worth it.
