Awesome, I just need to find someone with a laser cutter now. We have one at college, but I doubt they would just let me use it for my own project. Its about 30 years old and randomly cuts off things you don't want.
That could be (will be) a huge problem for qr codes..
Excellent idea..just gotta try this!
I think its a great idea. I think you could also use the common craft store stencil blanks or card stock, and just print this from your computer to print, then use the friendly ol exacto knife and some time cutting out all the black parts to reveal the stencil for painting. Before the days of plastic stencils, we used to put linseed oil on the card stock so it was strong to paints. Nowdays, kids use a sticker program and put stickers all over town - comes off in the rain or just eventually wears off.

Also, you could spray watered down washable paint with a spray bottle, too.

Awesome, simple instructable but so effective!
Oh hey, is it phenoptix from eBay? I have bought many of your 0603 SMD LEDs :)
That's me! Thanks for all your custom!! I'm a long time lurker and once contributor to instructables! Are you an xbox modder? Seems most of our 0603 SMD customers are!
Yea, I have a website selling xbox mods. I buy most of my LEDs from you! 
Nice clean site! Fast too. Any why only most?!
Thanks, I usually get a few 0603s with my mod chips, but as my supplier no longer sells them, I have to buy the chips and program them myself, so I will require more LEDs, I will probably buy from you. I will probably buy 100 or so soon.
I look forward to hearing from you! Have you seen the new site yet? www.phenoptix.com
