Fun With Stencils: T-Rex
This week I had some fun with stencils and spray paint. The mighty T-Rex is an awesome subject. I’ve always loved dinosaurs, like most people who were once ten year old boys. These were done on 11×14 matte board, with spraypaint and oil based markers. Each one used the same stencil, which is made out of plastic for durability.
The hat is, of course, for style.
Call me a traditionalist, but I’ll take my dinosaurs hold-the-feathers, thank you very much. I don’t want to see them as a bunch of overgrown turkeys. This is where me and science part ways. Keep your feathers. Call me when you have a proper wing.
These sprays are too much fun to do. I want to do a giveaway for my followers. If anyone is interested, tell me in the comments what color you want for your background, and what color you want the T-rex to be. For the first person that posts a comment, I’ll spray one and send it to you for free.
Free art just for naming two colors? What a deal!
I could do without the hat the way you could do without the feathers:P I like my dinosaurs far from Bel Aire and parents who just don’t understand:P
But, I like the stencil! I need to get myself a dino stencil like that. I wish I was skilled with spray paint and oil-based markers. I’m a wimp with pencil, ballpoint and Sharpie.
As for color picks, I am a bit torn. I like the woodsy jungle green layout you have…and the fiery orange lava splash. Can you do a yellow and purple lightning/stormy backdrop with a gunmetal gray T-Rex (sans hat)? Otherwise, some of that jungle color/plant scheme with a jade green or chocolate brown (or both with the brown along his back) T-Rex works, too.
I’ll try my best on this. Sounds like a challenge. Give me a few days and I’ll find a way to mail it to you. send your address to my email email@example.com so its not public.
Thanks for your interest!
How about you post a picture of it if the storm scheme works out (or the other one), and if I approve, we’ll work out the shipping business.
