I have recently gotten into making shirts and I made that stencil for my brother of The Fiery Furnaces for his birthday. Does anyone else do this and have any stencils to share? Or any stencil sites?

How do you go about getting that onto the shirt?

There's a a pretty good tutorial here (http://www.stencilrevolution.com/tutorials/tutorialsview.php?id=2)
and good ones to make the stencils too.

ooh! i've been wanting to do t-shirt stenciling for weeks. i've got tons of great ideas... its so rad! you can just use fabric spray paint which works very well, buuut you have to be careful. if you get it too close, it will run, and if you get it too far away, it will go outside the stencil and get all over. your best bet when using spray paint is simply to put something down around the stencil. anway, yeah.

This is what my hoodie has on it. (this is the inverted variety, the actual stencil is much larger and is a PSD.)

Every time you mention John the Baptist I think you are talking about Joannes Baptista Colloredo, the parasitic twin of Lazarus Colleredo, but that does not look like a picture of him! I am very confused. I don't think you have the real guy!

I was going to [img] them but they're both quite big. I have them both in .psd form if anyone is interested.

EDIT: On second thoughts, who cares! I'll [img] them anyway.
EDIT2: Much thanks to Black_mage who traced The Cure one on his waccom.

"Photobucket

This is not a shirt obviously- but i used this stencil of a cassette tape that mirrors itself on the other side of the bag.  I have this lettering too that I use on a lot of stuff, cards, posters and shirts... The quote is by Huxley.

I'm talking about the guy who baptised jesus, whose head was later cut off (by whom and for whom I can't recall.) the image in my shirt is edited from a 14th century painting.

justin, what kind of paint did you use?

Tulip brand "soft" brushable matte fabric paint, glacier white, to be exact. I just bought the white fabric paint that was at the local micheals arts and crafts store. It was either this or "marshmellow", which i didn't trust to be white... i mean, if it's white why not have "white" in the name?

stenciling is pretty awesome, i have never done any like this though, but silk screening is basically the same thing.  I've done quite a bit of it at school but all the shirts i've ever made weren't anything spectacular and they were for a club at school.  I think i'm gonna try out this though :p
