Default Re: stencils???

Ok... LOL...I do this for my ceramic work LOL
  1. go to your local office supply store... office depot, office max, whatever ask for a ream of "CARBONLESS COPY PAPER" or "NCR Paper"
  2. pick a font & font size to print a name out with...trial and error with regular paper so as not to waste the good stuff.
  3. determine which side is the carbony side... insert as bottom as determined by your printer so name is printed on the non carbon top... much like printing a photo
  4. Print
  5. align paper on what you are decorating with name use a ball point pen and now trace the printed name outline... if you printed the name on the proper side when you remove paper a tracing of the name will be the wood or whatever...
  6. paint to perfection
I say what I want, when I want, no one pays me... Its my opinion take it or leave it
