Stencil making?

Post by Mita on Tue Apr 24, 2012 6:21 pm

I am needing a stencil for a few sports teams, some tire tracks, and a few other things. I am thinking that I would like to make them myself, but I am not sure what to use to make them with. I have found the sticker stencils for glitter tattoos for the sports teams and I have seen I think it was snazzaroo for the tire tracks, but I want a reusable stencil for sports and I dont care for the look of the tire tracks on the other stencil. So, any ideas on what I should use to make the stencil and any good tire track looks that I could use?

For a great tire tracks stencil:

Tulip fabric puff paint (from Michael's or WalMart)
Computer print out of tire tread marks
Piece of glass
Transparent tape.

Tape the print out underneath the glass panel so that you can see the pattern. Use the fabric puff paint and carefully trace the tread on top of the glass panel. In 24 hours, carefully peel your new tire tread stencil off the glass.
The beauty of this stencil is that it is malleable and conforms beautifully to a face.

I've cut stencils out of stencil material, frequently found in the quilting section of the craft store. I've used an exacto 9not so effective) a hot knife (supah effective) and my silhouette cameo (weee, so nice.)

Grafix matte stencil film. Hobby Lobby, art stores, etc. Just about the same feel as the BAM stencils.

I have had mine for a year and a half. I made an envelope out of the parchment paper used for cooking.
When I first began to peel the stencil off the glass, I realized there were places where the paint was too thin and would break. I reinforced the whole stencil with a second color of the puff paint. I let it dry another day. I had originally created the stencil using a blue color. I reinforced with a green color because I had no more blue. The two toned effect looks interesting.

I got this idea from Ruggabug. Barb Ruggaburg lives in Toronto and is very kind and generous with her time and ideas.
Happy Painting!

Another material is to use used x-rays. My friend used to make stencils from them and just asked at a Dr.'s office for them. This recycled material is free...always good. flower Also, we found cleaning the stencils with baby wipes was the best.

I REALLY want a stencil burner. Since we are on the subject of stencils, this is the first stencil I ever created and cut myself (just finished it this afternoon). It's from a photo I took of my dog. I edited the image in GIMP and then printed the line drawing and used an X-acto knife to cut the stencil. Whew! That was A LOT of work! It's too big to use on a body anywhere but on someone's back, but I wanted to use it to practice with my airbrush.
