Free Stencils for Airbrushing!

These free stencils for airbrushing are perfect for custom t shirts. You'll find a couple of Sports Stencils and others that will suit a variety of design ideas.

Basketball Stencil from

The flow of paint from an airbrush creates such a smooth blast of color that a whole new genre of artwork can be created compared to the old paintbrush. I certainly admire the way airbrush artist can get colors to fade so wonderfully or get a clean black sharp line. It amazes me!

So as you might be able to tell I'm not an airbrush artist but I would like to try this one day. I guess I have been too busy with the paintbrush and I have to admit that I'm a little intimidated by the equipment. Anyway, if airbrushing is your thing I hope these patterns will be very useful to you.

If you are new to air brushed stenciling, then check out these great videos and find a few more free stencils like a Skull and Crossbones Stencil.

Butterfly Face Paint Stencil from

Many other designs can be used as stencils for airbrushing. Take this face paint stencil for instance. It's an easy one layer pattern that you can airbrush with a solid color and come back with many other colors to decorate. Imagine staring with a base of a bright yellow and then adding a bright orange and black outline. Well, you're the artist and I'm just running my imagination where you can go for your self.

The point is to check out all the stencils and not just search for stencils for airbrushing. So many others will work and that opens up your pool of stencil designs to work with.

Cross Stencil from

I find that religious symbols especially the cross are very popular in the current pop art culture. I see them on jeans and other clothing articles, in graffiti art stencils and tattoo stencils. I also find them in great numbers when I'm researching art. Here is a very simple design but you can find a few more ornate patterns at Cross Stencil where you'll also find a Celtic Cross Stencil.

For some other very unique patterns that work well as stencils for airbrushing, click over to Tribal Stencils where you'll find unique stencils resembling Pacific Islanders Body art.

A Flame Stencil is also a very good design for stencils for airbrushing art project.

Football Stencil

Sports Stencils are another very popular stencils for airbrushing art mostly for the creation of custom t shirts. Stencils make it easy to paint several or many shirts with the same pattern for your sports team.

Also, don't forget to check out the Airbrush Tattoo Stencils for some interesting designs that can be used as stencils for airbrushing for any reason.

Here's a tip: For any stencil that I print on paper I always cover the top side with a clear coating like clear shelf liner before you cut out the openings (islands). This way you can use your paper stencil again and again.

Guitar Stencil

Here's a cool design for your stencils for airbrushing project. In fact, check out Guitar Stencil for more about how this can adorn a t shirt. I used regular fabric paints and a sponge brush so I'm sure you can greatly improve on that with airbrush technique.
