stencil tutorials



Stenciling is the poor persons��� printmaking. It is the easiest and cheapest way to print the same image over and over on different surfaces and in different places. To start off, the three most important things for making a stencil are an idea, something to cut with, and something to cut the stencil out of. I cant��� help with the idea part, but you should���t feel like you have to be an artist to do this. One of the great things about stencils is that since each print looks the same and consists of only a positive and negative, it makes almost all designs look really sharp and good.


This is a quick way to use photoshop to create that semi-trendy, two-tone silhouette effect.
