Air brushed stenciling is one of the most versatile ways of using stencils. Airbrush stencils are used to paint complex art on cars to fingernails to body art with
airbrush tattoo stencils.
If you have been creating with
airbrush stencils then you’re already aware of the many many ways they can be used. If not, prepare to be amazed.
If you've used traditional paints with stencils you know how difficult it is to get a clean smooth finish of color. No problem with air brushed stenciling. Airbrushing stencils (as opposed to spray painting or hand painting with a brush) creates a very smooth, seamless and blended look.
You can use an air brush stenciling technique for Mural Stenciling, you can make professional looking custom t-shirts, transform your car into a work of art on wheels, decorate fancy cakes or cupcakes (with food coloring of course), or even decorate your body with airbrush tattoo stencils.
Be sure to check out our selection of graffiti art stencils that look great with either spray painting or air brushing stenciling methods. Here is just one of the free stencils you’ll find there.
Below is a collection of great videos by expert Mike Royall from Expert Village. He is a lot of fun to watch and passes along some very useful information.
In the first video, you’ll get some tips on the best materials to use for making your own
stencils for airbrushing.
Just a side note: I like to use my paper stencils but before cutting out the stencil pattern I cover the top with a clear protective coat like clear shelf liner. It makes the whole process much easier. They last longer and aren’t prone to tearing.
