Hi all,

I've got a big corporate gig coming up next weekend and the bosses
have asked me to do the corporate logo. Its really quite intricate
and although I always work freehand I would really like to use
stencils for this one as there are going to be one heck of a lot of
people. Also from previous experience with the company the clients
aren't that bothered about the 'experience' of getting a henna
tattoo, rather than just getting it as quickly as possible and
getting back to the free bar (not ideal but it pays). As such can
anyone help with the latest on stencils.

Does anyone know an effective way of using an inkjet printer for
them (is there an ideal, cheap paper to use).

If not what is the latest word on hand drawing stencils. I have
tryed carbon copying ont0 grease proof paper but this didn't work
very well and I have tried water colour pencils but I have found
that that are to unreliable and take to long to apply.

Someone suggested rice paper or the paper they use to wrap up
crockery etc in shops but I dont know what pen to use for the
stencil. Also does any one know what companys that make temporary
tattoos use for there stencils. It appears to be a kinda shiny paper
like the packing paper but I am not sure.

Sorry its such a long one but there is an air of desperation on this
one. Last time I did this gig was quite intimidating as people
didn't show much patience, but unfortunately this is a necessary
bill payer. Hope you can help

P.S love everything about this site
