Is that Hara Hara Haruko? ;p A fellow FLCL fan x3
woot
That doesn't look pretty.
I use this same technique and make my own t-shirt designs. It works great and the color holds well. Great Job!
Hrmm... seems the best bet to eliminate underspray is to use a thinner materiel, like freezer paper. As an addendum, you can use spray mastic (available at most craft stores) to get the pattern to stick to the wall. Most of these leave no real residue when you are done either. Great instructable, time to get creative. ~C
Contact Paper... its a big sticker with a weak adhesive. Not only does it completely eliminate the underspray, the tape, the pain the butt cutting of the cardboard... and its dirt cheap. You can get it in the house wares section at walmart
PS: Using soemthing like freezer paper would also allow you to use scissors to do the fine edging and give you a smoother more rounded look to the curves. ~C
this is not a decal.
Seems like a good point to mention rasturbator--program for taking small images and making them really, really large. Probably work well for these types of prints. Try:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/">http://homokaasu.org/rasterbator/</a><br/>
the UNDERSPRAY isnt the problem, its the jaggie lines that make it unatractive
spray anhiseve is better
Nice, what graphics program do you recommend?
nice scooter
very, very cool, I want to try!
this is good.. but its not a good stencil and you smudged it to make it look like it is.. stencils shouldnt have island in them (like the headlight).. when you spray it the headlight should be missing.. unless its a 2 layerd stencil. The final product was photoshoped to look like it works. This is a great tut for other stencils w/o islands stencilrevolution !!!
Since when can stencils not have islands? It looks like the headlight circle was placed on the wall between steps 6 and 7. Even so, there are ways to make stencils with islands, especially with cardboard. I've made a few before and they've been strong enough to last a few late night trips out on the streets.
im talking about a full island... like nothing connecting it.<br/>last pic does look edited (altho i still really like this instructable) <br/><br/>cut the circle out around this to make a stencil<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.antennas-to-heaven.com/15.JPG">http://www.antennas-to-heaven.com/15.JPG</a><br/>if you can do that and still have the aphex logo in one stencil plz post.. but i dont think you can. you could make to stencils... one the logo and one that circle and have it work.<br/><br/>i do like this one tho! im just saying that a different stencil would work perfectly<br/>
Depends on your definition of an island. If you mean that the stencil literally having an island with no connection, then that's impossible. But if you want a technique that can deliver the effect of an island, which is really the point, then that's easily done. When I get back on Monday I'll make one. They're really simple.
All right, I did it and you can go <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/id/E8BGAW39PWERF7FTX6/?ALLSTEPS">check it out</a>.<br/>
dang i was totally going to make an instructable on making huge stencils, i think i will soon...
stencilrevolution gallery????
You can see the cardboard circle in the picture of step seven.
antirem. didnt use photoshop to add the circle! Double sided sticky tape on cutout circle ! :D
:D that makes sense.. i just didnt see that step and was wondering about it. You have a stencilrevolution gallery?
If you insist on cardboard, try printing the image flipped across the vertical axis and do the same process. When you're cutting through the top layer of the cardboard, then the 3mm gap, and then the surface layer you're bound to get some distortion in there. And then use some spray mount to keep it flush with the surface and avoid the overspray. Of course, if you're doing this just once, you can skip the cardboard entirely and just use the paper you printed it out on and then use spray mount.
its a really basic stencil. shame you did a shoddy job with overspray. check out www.stencilrevolution.com for some better looking work sans overspray, with more layers. other than that, good instructable, and nice image.
Woo. that's really cool.
