Using stencils to paint my stuff was pretty much the first thing I did to turn my regular clothes into unique punk pieces. I don't count the marker-on-T-shirt scribble, and I have tutorials for bleach in other posts. Although I now have the option of screen printing, I still like to use stencils. In principle, it's straightforward - you cut out the motif, put the stencil on the fabric and start painting. I've tried many materials and techniques and would like to introduce them to you here.
