11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: First Time Multi Layer Stencil...HELP! on: February 02, 2007 09:45:47 PM
It looks like a four layer stencil.  The simplest method would be to print (or photocopy) it four times at the size you want.  Write on each one which color you'll be cutting out (white, light gray, medium gray or dark gray).  I believe the white is the bottom layer, then light gray, medium gray, then dark grey.

Does that help?

what about stenciling on walls??

It works the same as stenciling on anything else, just make sure you're in a very well ventilated area.  Do you have a question about how to do it?  I'll help as much as I can.

This isn't exactly stenciling by definition, I did it with masking tape and spray paint on my living room wall.  There's a bunch of pics and I finally added a link to the video of it.  It may help some https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=34845.0

I think I saw a picture of Paris Hilton wearing that shirt, except that it said, "YOUR NOT" on the back.  Ooops.

Also, you can go to the Dover Publications website and sign up for free samples to be sent to your email.


Sometimes it takes a bit of sifting through the samples they send each week, but it's usually worth it.

I've been collecting from dover samples for months, you can get some great stuff.  My favorite (right now?) are the  children's coloring books, especially the Safety one.  It had pictures of a crossing guard and some other silly stuff.  Now I just need to find a use for it.

You can resell shirts without a problem, it falls under the "first sale" law.  As long as you paid for the shirts, you can sell them, no matter their tag or company (unless it specifies that it is not for resale, but I've never heard of that on a shirt).  American Apparel is very popular for stenciling shirts.

The bigger issue is the images.  You can not use copyrighted or trademarked images (ie band logos, brand names, copies of Threadless shirts, etc).  It's also wrong to use someone else's stencil without express permission to sell them (I wouldn't sell shirts with Banksy/Shepard Fairy/Logan Hicks* images).  The best idea is to make your own image and create your own stencil from that.  Originality sells better than copies, especially in the craft community.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask.  I just researched a whole bunch of copyright info for the ATC forum.

*If anyone can recreate a Logan Hicks stencil, I would love to see it....that man is inhuman in his talent

My brand new digital camera came tonight.  Yay!  I can finally photograph and send out the atcs that I owe to Selise and AsphaltQueen (I haven't forgotten you guys, promise!)

"The Great Big Donut"

While I was working on that one, I got a new idea for another one, which grew into a series....
These are my Syllable Series:

hmm...the bronze ink came out brighter in the photos...

Assuming your wall has normal paint, spray adheasive won't leave any marks or sticky stuff.  I haven't used it on a wall, but I'll used it to stencil on my snowboard, my mini-fridge, notebooks, records and even regular paper.  No problems ever.

Wait...sorry, I stenciled my pirate fridge before I found spray adheasive, just kidding.  What a difference it makes though.

As for Disney... I hate Mickey Mouse anyway, so pooh to them.

I started choking on my coffee at this.  Does that count as a pun?
