So goes the old adage:- my anime fandom is too old/uncool, so I must make my own fanart!
I really like stencil art, but am not rebellious enough to go desecrate the city streets. Cutting stencils out of heavy cardboard requires a lot of patience, so instead I've opted for generic computer paper. Of course, this renders the reusable manufacturing aspect of the stencil obsolete, as paper of a certain gsm weight can only withstand soaking so much paint.
This is, the disposable stencil. Sharpen your exacto blades.
