Introduction: Stenciled Moleskine

About: I'm the former Frontend Engineer for Instructables. Problems with the site? It may have been my fault... Like what you see? Sing my praises!

I was riffing with the logo for False Profit and came up with something that might work as a stencil, so I actually laser cut one and started looking around for something to use it on. My moleskine was nearby, so that's what got stencilled.

I didn't really hold the stencil very still or flatten it carefully against the surface, which is why the stencil is a little blurry.

    Nah. It looks like copper, but that's just the gold spray paint on plastic. It was flexing all over the place.

    Yeah, it's all about the 3-axis CNC machines, baby.

    You don't want to laser moleskines. They contain PVC which produces toxic gasses that are harmful to you and the laser. See Lady Ada's forum there is quite a bit of discussion on it.

    get a can of 3m spray adhesive and spray a TINY bit on the stencil. this will help it bind to whatever yer painting and prevent underspray.

    Note: there's a surface coating on the Moleskine leather that prevented the spraypaint from binding well. Not sure what the solution here, is. Next time, I'm laser-cutting the leather directly!
