Ever since I discovered spray paint at the age of 7 or 8, making stencils has always been a hobby of mine. After years of developing my stencils from paper, to cardboard, card stock, sticky-back printer paper, and styrene plastic, I’ve finally figured out a fool proof way to transfer just about any design to any surface you want. The trick involves a cutting board, an XActo knife, spray paint, and the magic ingredient: blue masking tap (painter’s tape).
I'll be using a couple stencils that I did of some company logos as examples. I made these stencils for the fuselage of the Viper Flight Simulator
(they were sponsors).
