Graffitti, art, find your inner street artist!
Ever driven through a town rich in graffitti art and get inspired? Well this tutorial will teach you how to make your very own stickers. DISCLAIMER: Graffiti art can come with criminal charges, I don't recommend you go crazy with this project. I do recommend you trade with friends though it's lots of fun to collect and trade.
[[Here in Los Angeles there is a place called Self Help Graphics, They hold events where you can make and trade stickers and get yourself out there. Check your local art stores for posts about these kinds of events.]]
We made these specifically for sticker trades. We aren't taggers nor vandalism advocates. This was simply a project I did for fun.
you can print this image, if you don't have a printer you can very carefully use your monitor as a lightbox and trace the dark part of the stencil. make sure to capture details that matter, like facial features and such.
Get a sheet of stencil at your local craft store, they usually have a pack of anywhere from 4 sheets to 8.. Reasonably priced.
Go to your local Staples and buy labels. you want Full sheet labels, they are about the standard size of a piece of paper.
cut them to how you see fit, and lay your stencil on top of them, hold your spraycan above the image and coat it evenly, Dont coat too much because you want to use these stencils again and again.
And there you are! your very own Graffiti Stickers!
