For some reason I’ve suddenly gotten in to stencils and making my own t-shirts. This is my first real attempt at stencilling and although it’s got quite a few smudges I’m rather proud of it. I used the tutorial on stencil revolution and found the design on one of the stencil forums I’ve been playing on. Stencilling t-shirts is a lot less involved than I thought it would be – it’s almost easy!
The next shirt I make will be a design of my own, I’ve already made the picture so the next step will be to print it then cut it out. I thought I’d wait until my fingers healed after chopping them to ribbons making the Rilo Kiley one. This time I will leave more space around the stencil to ensure that my overzealous rolling of the paint doesn’t make it to the t-shirt. The hardest part has been finding high quality t-shirts. If only there was an American Apparel shop in Australia. They’re expensive shirts though.
