Old thread but as a reminder to any aspiring graffiti artists if you're thinking of using stencils to get up, don't. You look like a hipster faggot and other writers will always go over your shit first.

That being said stencils for any other purpose are cool as fuck, just thought I'd warn anyone retarded enough to think using stencils for graff is ok.

1. Remove all unnecessary details, and then some of the kind-of necessary details on top of that. If you notice it disappear when zoomed out, keep it. Detail is a right bastard to get right, so it's often easier to smooth over into different, larger shapes. Makes the stencil easier to cut out and more stable to hold/spray around
2. Bridges. If you want to cut the white bit out to outline around, these are the things that keep the thing from tearing apart in your hands since you can just go over it in post. Obviously if you are just cutting into a piece to spray into the black bits, you can ignore this image, because you'll have different islands to deal with and bridge (most would be in the hair). Ideally, make the bridges obnoxiously big and connect a few points together, it makes the stencil more stable and harder to miss them when going over it post-spray. On the flipside, smaller bridges (like in the hair) are stupidly fucking tedious to get right, easier to fuck up the entire piece with a slip-but harder to notice if you get it down. Dots (like the ones attaching the hair to the face) are shit easy to do, add a nice amount of stability and are overall good calls to pepper longer stretches with (just remember they exist)
3. Don't forget, you are essentially free-spraying when bridging shit, so take that into consideration. Alternatively you can make another stencil with the white added to the black and the bridges as white, then spray those inwards. Be careful however, because if you get it 1mm off; it looks really fucking weird and disjointed.

Actually this is the easiest bit, just do 2 coats to cover the red/colour from the river. Careful with the deer skull if you want to bridge the red bits to form the eye/nose socket, I gave up in the end because the cuts were too fine; but f you did it on a larger canvas it should be quite easy once you've done the branches

Spray stencils. Use a scalpel to cut the bit you want paint to go through, then spray it on whatever surface.

has anyone tried this?
>>
>>574503
I'm very curious about this as well. The images at the bottom at least look more like thin turf that has been precut and affixed to the wall. But if this actually works that would be pretty fucking dope.
>>
>>574503
>>574523

This does work although the outcome varies a lot.
The images shown are optimistic and too nice to be real ,speaking from experience.

There is a possibility that you will have to get the ratios figures out yourself, for me it worked partially the first time, most of it fell off or didnt grow in some spaces. But after few tries it worked well, i "painted" a small wall near the house to make it look a bit nicer.

Just have in mind that its moss, and if you want it too look as green as in the pictures you would have to spray it with water a lot, for artsy things i wouldnt recommend it, but for planting moss on walls etc its great

Hey PO, /diy/er here. Saw this stencil design and cut her out on some 4mm bass wood, currently building a cabinet with frosted acrylic backing with plans to light her from behind with LEDs.

Tldr: thanks for inspiration >>568657

Any tips on spraying a better stencil? How about for cleaning up the jagged edges in the source file? They're not really a problem since they can be smoothed while cutting, but it would look nicer posted online.

1. Run out of walls yet?
2. How'd you get away with vandalism in the UK (because fuck me have I tried)
3. Why are you still here? Just to suffer?
>>
>>577084
1) Yes
2) I get my fans to do the actual vandalism
3) Because life is suffering, and also the lels.

gee, that's swell.

is it just me or do the actual stencils have way more gaps than the printed examples?

I wonder whether I should take the extra effort to use the actual stencils as my base, rather than the much cleaner printed one... though i haven't decided what i'm going to put oswald on yet...

where did you get these? maybe they already converted them to some vector format.

You'd probably have to track down a physical copy (and then digitize it for the rest of us). I can't find more than these same six stencils online. Maybe that's all there is?

Thanks, now we have scans of two different physical copies, even if they're low resolution.
>>577323
>>577248
look at the one with the top hat -- in the printed examples he has whiskers in the middle of his face, not just sticking out of it. but not in any of the physical scans. curious. I think the printed examples will work if I cut them at a larger size.

...I wonder what physical size these were. probably made for pencils and not spray paint...

if I get around to making clean B&W images, I'll post them.
>>
>>577348
>...I wonder what physical size these were.
Pic related. There are some pictures online of museum displays and auctions and such, dig around with your search engine of choice and reverse image searches from TinEye, Google Images, etc.
>probably made for pencils and not spray paint...
It looks that way. Look at the scribbles on >>577323, also remember seeing a picture earlier of the stencils displayed next to colored pencils.

is this good enough for any purpose?

i used the printed examples from >>577247, cropped them out to six separate png files, and ran imagemagick on them like this:

magick raw-painting.png -channel G -separate -threshold 36% -magnify painting.png

anyone think this is good enough for any purpose? The -magnify option smoothed it out as it doubled the resolution, but look at his left ear. Must I resort to hand-tracing to get higher resolution than this? i really want to just machine-convert it to vector and laser-cut it.

i know >>577248 has more resolution, but it also has crap stuck to the edges, so i'd have to clean it out in a paint program.

How do you cut the more detailed stencils? Is it just getting a box cutter or those paper-craft cutters and carefully cut?
>>
>>577388
one time I sat down with an xacto knife and hacked out an entire "troll face" stencil complete with forehead wrinkles and "U MAD?" caption at the bottom. It took hours and was very sloppy. But now I have access to a laser cutter, so I can make a perfect one in ten minutes if I want to.

There are several kinds of automated cutting and engraving devices, but most are too expensive for personal use, so you'll have to check the art studios, print shops, and maker spaces in your area.

Scalpel and 1-2 spare blades.

What grade thickness do you guys generally use? I'm leaning towards trying with 160 or 200 GSM paper, but I'm not too sure (especially since the rest of the board prefers the thinner end of the thickness varieties).
