Whatever works but I would suggest giving GIMP a try. And yet another gift from Apoth, here is a great stencil making tutorial.

Sad but true! I have cs2 on my computer, but the power supply failed and haven't fixed it. So, I'm using my wife's computer and didn't want to put any programs on here. I did what I did, with what I had!

I'll have to show that to my GF, I've watched her code and most of her coding is done in a Notepad style program.. just lines of code that looks like gibberish to me that she somehow can decipher into websites. I have to have something like dreamweaver to even attempt any coding, and it sucks when I do.

she'll get a good laugh

1. Copy the picture you want to make into a stencil & paste in a blank Word doc

2. Right click the image > Format picture

3. Change image to Grayscale

4. Mess around with the Contrast/Brightness levels to get what you're looking for.

*Note* Sometimes you'll get a great looking left eye for example but everything else looks bad... take parts that look good and piece together an overall good-looking stencil.

**Also** I opened the stencil in Paint. View > Zoom > 200% or 400% and cleaned up the lines a little with the Eraser and Paintbrush.

I'm not a graphic artist, don't hate me if this method doesn't work for you!
Thanks. I will give that a try.

I converted this from a photo, and have already drawn it out on the masking(hand hurts from the tediousness of it). Adobe PS5.5 has great filters for converting pictures to outlines and stencils. Going to be a bitch to cut though.

I don't have an image, but I have an idea for a dye. Maybe someone else can come up with a good dye image. I was thinking of doing a Lat64 "Aunt" Flow dye. For those really, really bad days...
