1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Spirited Away stencil on record + Goonies paper stencil + tips and trickz on: December 19, 2007 09:31:09 PM

It's been a while.  But it's also gift-giving season and I decided to make all my gifts this year.  Here are my two stencil'd gifts.

First - A simple two-layer stencil of a Goonies image I found online.  Done on paper with acrylic paint and freezer paper.  Friend loved it and had never heard of stencilry.

Catch up, Data.

Second - A scene from "Spirited Away".  This is 3-layers on vinyl (Olivia Newton-John).  This was my second experience with spray-paint and also with vinyl.  It was my first experience with spray adhesive.  I'm pleased with how it came out but it could've been better.  I also used sharpie on the soot-balls.

Sorry about the blurrrrrr.

I think the grey was enamel based.  Lesson learned.

Tips/tricks/secret codez
-I used manila folders for my stencils.  They worked very well.
-Spray adhesive is wonderful.  But it's friggin' deadly.  Use it outside.  Also: let it dry on the stencil for 2-3 minutes until it's tacky, not wet.  Then slap it on whatever.  Do this too soon and it will leave residue on whatever you put it on.  Or it will rip the paint off.
-Let each layer dry 1+ hour.  Bake apple crisp while you do this.  It's delicious.

That's it!
Enjoy the holidays dudez.

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / help with covering up print on blanket on: January 16, 2007 07:13:52 AM
So my girlfriend wants a sweatshirt blanket (those blankets made from the same material that sweatshirts are made of).  Now the only place that carries them around here is the college i used to attend.  So on the blanket it reads "Fredonia State" across the middle.  She doesn't attend Fredonia, so I want to cover up this somehow.  I was considering stitching fabric over it to make a design but i'm not that good at stitching. and short of a design idea.

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / leaping houses + arrows stencil design - need criticism on: March 30, 2006 12:37:39 PM

so that's the design i'm working on for a friend.
it's going on a shirt. on the lower right or left portion of the shirt
and it will sort of wrap around.
there will be arrows on the opposite side as well.
but i still feel like it's missing something.

ps. i wanted to personify the houses.
that's why they're jumping and cussing.
and if the picture doesn't work
http://www.flickr.com/photos/bc_likes_you/ is the link to my flickr account.

9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / a simple three-layer stencil for a girl on: December 18, 2005 06:29:21 PM
she likes zelda, so you know.

background is a wash.

i need to get rid of those guidelines. 
i do believe i'm leaving the rest blank. 
i'm afraid of messing it up aesthetically if i put anything elsewhere.

i did this with acrylic paint, freezer paper, and an iron.  freezer paper works well on paper too.  doesn't tear or anything.  i'll answer any other questions as well.


10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / girlfriend gift idea: artsy/graphic design/harry potter on: December 03, 2005 10:08:02 PM
hi, i'm new (to posting anyways).

so anyways, sort of stuck on an idea for my girlfriend.
i've made her a scrapbook, a stencil'd portrait of ourselves, and a ton of mix-cds.
so i kind of want to do something new.

she's into graphic design/photography, plants, harry potter, artsy movies, and neat t-shirts.
so yeah, that's what i'm working with.
i was thinking of doing a multi-layer'd t-shirt stencil with the design focus'd on the lower-right
portion of the t-shirt.
but i don't know what of.

so there you have it.
much appreciation for any help
