I also happened to have needed something cool for the wall in front of my dining room table


My friend nick and i decided that this volvo pic would look sick on my wall.

Some photoshop work was done to make it black and white and to make it work as a stencil. Then i used a badass plotter at work made this possible, enjoy!:

THE VOLVO IN SPORTS PART WILL BE DONE NEXT WEEK AS WE WANTED TO MAKE A SEPARATE STENCIL FOR THAT.

:-D I'm really glad with the way everything came out, looks AWESOME in person.
Also want to say thank you to the original artist and my friend who has a great vision for these things.

Would you be willing to make another stencil and roll it up and send it to me in a poster tube so I can do the same thing on my garage wall?

I'm more than happy to pay you for it.

I will ask the guy who made the stencil if i can post up the file to do the cutting. I'm not sure that it would be easy to ship because of all the cutouts are tought to manage, and if you were to unroll it, you would surely rip it. I can post up a step by step with the file if you guys want.

So i think the war stripes are going to get painted, and the volvo part might or might not be done in color. :-D

it looks so much more awesome in person ;-) wish you guys could see it.

for future references, dont use tape.

Buy a can of spray adhesive. Spray the back side of the stencil, and let it sit for 10 minutes, then stick it on the wall.

thanks, i'm not sure the spray adhesive would have worked due the flimsy paper, and the large amount of paper removed made it a bit unwieldy.

plus, spray adhesive leaves a residue on the wall and the smaller pieces of the stencil would have been a pain to rip off. my buddy said he'd tried this.

Ok here's the how-to

Volvo Stencil

Here is how to do your very own volvo stencil wall painting.

1. Print the stencil. It is dimensioned to be wall-sized. If you scale it down smaller some of the details might be difficult to cut out properly, but not impossible.

2. We used a 44 inch plotter which printed the image in two parts. This meant we had to cut and spray them separately, which required some extra work lining the two halves up. If possible, have the image rotate properly so it comes out of the plotter as a single piece of paper.

3. Lay the stencil on a piece of cardboard or some other cutting surface and carefully cut out all of the black sections using an exacto knife. The outlines are already predesigned to work properly. I recommend you start with small stuff and leave the huge areas for last. The pixelations are a result of printing off of a computer -- use your artistic judgement to make all of the cut lines as smooth and straight as possible.

4. Using blue painters tape, tack the top corners of the stencil on the wall, and reposition as necessary to get it straight.

5. Using tiny pieces of tape, carefully attach ALL of the loose flappy parts of the stencil cutouts. Make the tape small enough so that it follows the shape of the cutouts. The stencil should essentially be flat against the wall when you're done.

6. Surround with newspaper

7. Using broad sweeping strokes lay down the paint. spray about 8 inches from the wall. make sure that you don't spend too much time in one place or the paint will drip and ruin the lines of the stencil. We used flat black Ace Hardware paint.

8. Let it dry (2-3min), go over the light spots, and let dry another 2-3 minutes.

9. Remove all the stuff and enjoy.
