Step 7: Stencilable Image

There you go! You end up with a semi usable image.
The key to stenciling is to editing out the "islands" of white in your image. You can make little bridges for them if need be. Once again this can be accomplshed in whatever bitmap editing program (MSPaint) you have lying around. I think the image I have can be edited by hand, so I'm going to print it now.

I tried to change the color of my stencil using "select by color" but it remained black. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for the input.

before I print my stuff, I select the black using "select by color" and make it gray, so I can save some ink.

If you have a laser printer handy, you can just print directly onto a transparency sheet, then x-acto out the dark spots. I used to do that, then staple the transparency onto an old window screen, and there you have a diy silkscreen.

My printer can occasionally print a transparency, but it comes out all blotchy and I have to outline it with marker.....
