Pumpkin Carving: Come and get your Prince stencils

Hey everybody I made some stencils here for pumpkin action, if you have any requests just drop a picture and I'll see if I cant do some of the more simple ones... Probably should have posted this earlier seeing as halloween is tomorrow. No matter better late than never I suppose smile

Very nice!!

I'm fascinated by the pumpkin-carving culture (didn't realise anything beyond the classic faces existed until last year).

Someone posted these last year, also very cool - http://prince.org/msg/7/345974

For the Janelle fans, I saw this on twitter today - http://twitpic.com/78cs7x

They're all just extraordinary.

I wouldn't have the patience wink

I just took the picture and traced over it using the program PaintTool SAI, though I'm sure any program with layers and a pen tool would work just fine smile

You just need to make sure you don't create any holes that wouldn't really work out for stencil action...

I'm still up for requests by the way.

You are free to improvise on the taco meat, of course.

These aren't just for pumpkins, either! You can just print these suckers out, cut out the black, and spray paint some Princey Prince action on your favorite white tee!

Better yet you print them out passport size and spray paint them on your wallet or sneakers!

A stencil of the symbol is actually harder since its got that hole in the middle. Best thing to do is to cut out the symbol itself and spray paint on it so you'll have the negative. Good deal.

I'm kind of OCD so I don't like to have those little lines that makes the stencil actually work. If you wanted a pumpkin Prince symbol without the line(s) you would have to carve the pumpkin just so that the light shines through but the outside isn't pierced all the way through. I'll try it next year. To be honest I didn't even make a Prince one this year since I only had one pumpkin and I wanted to do Cyclops from X-men.
