Maybe you need a sharper x-acto knife?  A new blade?  I don't know what you are cutting on, either, but make sure you are cutting on something like a cutting board or mat so you can press as hard as you need to to get the cut.

But it sounds like you might just need a sharper blade.

Hm, well the x-acto is brand new...  I can try a different blade tho, this one seems pretty sharp...
I am cutting on a sewing cutting mat- its SLIGHTLY squishy..maybe I should try a piece of wood?

ok when i made my jack the shredder t-shirt(i'll get pics up when i can) i found that the white faded(black shirt white wording) so used nail polish and i have to say it works well. It's also easier with the little brush to get it to tiny places.

if you were street punk you would care about the stain in the first place.  I think it's great, and yes transparent accetate would work well.  an added bonus with accetate is most are photocopier friendly (ask your stationary/office supply sales assistant when purchacing) which adds a whole new dimension to manipulating the image before cutting you stencil.

I'd just like to say thnak you to everyone on this forum for inspiring me to get off my arse and make myself a Bright Eyes t-shirt, something ihave been meaning to do for a while Grin

This was the result! (sorry for the blackness, the pic is  ripped off my journal)

I'm pretty pleased with it, maybe should have stuck the stencil with the letters on down...the bleed gave a nice effect on the front tho Smiley

I'd also like to add that this forum will be keeping me very busy!!! I have goopd intentions all the time but now i have ways of doing things properly heh   Smiley

I read through this thread and didn't see an answer to lover's question about a free program to turn pics into black and white.  I use Microsoft Word to change my images.  Just open a blank document and under the "insert" menu, there will be an option that says "pictures."  Then insert your image "from file."  The picture toolbar should pop up with your image.  (If not, right click on your image and select "show picture toolbar.")  You should be able to click on the "image control" button (it looks like two rows of boxes) and select "black and white."  Voila!

I like using Word because I can save my images as a document and easily pull them up, without the hassle of saving the picture as a jpeg or gif or whatnot.  Hope this helps!
