who wouldnt want weezer or elvis costello on their shirt?

heres my finished product:

the coloring on my digital camera is kinda crazy, i apologize. its a lot darker than in real life. i also made the mistake of not mixing medium in with my paint, so its kinda cracking. also, the shirts are pretty thin. i got em at penny's on sale a couple months ago. but in case you want one of those lovelies as your own, here are my stencils.

the man himself, elvis with his guitar. i did fix all the islands on that one.

and the boys from weezer. there are some islands. for instance, the 'e's' and in one or two other places. dont ask me why is loaded so small. i suppose if you have problems making it larger, you could PM me and ill send the normal sized one.

if you end up using them id love to see how yours turn out!

WOW!!!!  I am in love.  I adore Elvis Costello!!!!  That is my dream shirt.........I have been looking for something to try out screen printing with and I am suddenly inspired!!!!

Excellent Costello stencil!  I have a screened t-shirt a friend made for me several years ago, with an EC design he made based on the cover of This Years Model.  I've been wanting to try stenciling, and now I definitely want to try your pattern.   I am a major major EC fan -- I met my husband online via an Elvis Costello discussion list ;-)

Did you use acrylic paint or fabric paint or silkscreen ink or what?

hehe, thanks all.

amelia bedelia - more than anything it was a pain to cut out. there are only 2 islands aside from the e's. one that i forgot to fix on the computer version of the stencil on the first guys shirt and one of the second guys eyes. but if youre skilled with exacto knifes (which takes practice, believe you me lol) then its not so bad... so long as you dont lose those islands haha. but i found that it was the easier one to paint and it shows up fine when its finished. accuracy is the key i suppose =P

xmelinda - haha that is so cool! yes, i used acrylic, but the shirt was so thin and paint so thick i think its going to crack. my original idea was to do a picture from my aim is true.. on the cd itself theres a close up of his face that i wanted, but it didnt look quite right in stencil form. so i googled and found that one instead, i tweaked it to fix the islands on his face but hes still recognizable AND i didnt have a thousand tiny pieces to stil on.. if you use it id love to see how it turns out =D
