to any of my SCAdian friends, or just anyone who's considering using stencils on their garb/clothes.

The Tulip precut sticky stencils that they sell at Michaels are really thin and floppy. They stick well for about seven stencils, and then stop sticking well.

With a heavily detailed stencil like those, you really need them to stick well. And for a full hitoe (which is what I'm making), you really need about 10 stencils for the small panels and 20 for the big ones. For those of you counting along at home, that's about 120 stencils.

Yeah, I won't be doing that, not with those stencils. I'm probably going to be freehanding something, or producing my own stencil. Probably freehanding. Not sure what yet.

Heh
