lets get started, stencil caps are for small details like eye lashes on charcter and other things like that. they do use up a fair bit of paint, and are not for handstyles, throw ups or anything like that. here's what you will need to make one:


The cap off a spray can (plastic cap on top that indicates color)
Exacto knife
Lighter
Pin


1. Take the cap and cut away the outer ring (you should be left with a small tube thats coverd on one end).
2. Mark were the paint sprays out on the tube.
3. Use the lighter to heat up the pin and make a small hole were you put the mark(bigger hole, less fine line, not as good quality, smaller hole, finer line, better quality). make sure to not make the hole to small or to big, it shoudl idealy be around 2-3 mm across.
4. Cut off part of the coverd end of the tube so you can put your finger in to push down the cap.

the tube should fit snugly around the ring of the top of the can.



this works best with a ny thin cap or a german outline/german outline2.


there you go! a stencil cap, make sure to dump out the paint from inside the cap when it starts to build up.

haha thats sweet im gonna go try that you could probably also drill out the tip of the cap that the paint comes from and stick a tube in there that goes to the cap(indicator thing with hole in it) so it uses less paint but hey you got a good idea there

it's a good idea to put a very wide rubberband around the base of the modified
top. this keeps the paint from getting all over your hands if the top doesn't seal properly.

this sprays roughly 2-3 mm wide.

if you want to change a female cap, just jam the little plastic tube of a bic pen in the hole.
what the fuck does that have to do with this?

i tried this and got paint everywhere except through the hole. How do you know where exactly to poke the hole through? Just guess?

did you try pointing the cap at the hole???


idealy it should be the same hight as were the paint sprays out when you push the cap down.

no shit, but when you spray it, it goes all over the cap, so you can't tell where it centers, so if it's even slightly off, it totally fucks up.

put the cap on a can, and hold the stencil cap in front, and mark were the paitn sprays from, then move the mark down how ever much of the stem of the cap is showing. there's were you make your hole

in my town we use the cap from a 40oz with a tiny hole poked in the side, stuck on top of a regular cap, instead, of the plastic top on cans. its kinda messy tho, but smaller, i find it is a bit easier than using the other method,

tip: wear rubber kitchen gloves, if you dont want paint, all over your hands, cotton gloves usually soak thru with paint, specially when using the 40oz method

idk what ur talking about...i got confused....idk if this is what ur talking about but,,,,if u cut out a little picture in the actually cap u could just spray at a wall n the it would come out as ur stencil

EDIT-nevermind, u would have no way to spray it

EDITED EDIT-unless u cut a whole in the back

EDITED EDITED EDIT-this post ^^^^^^^^ is extremely toy

it is a lid that covers your nozzle(tip/cap) and lets out only a very small amount of spray fo fine details

no, it dosent. how would it? if paint cant get thru the cap, how would it get thru by adding another piece of plastic onto it. if you want to reuse the caps soak them in paint thinner but its alot easier to just throw them out and get new ones.


and tony, thanks for the post. now that you say that i remember it from the old forums but i had completely forgot untill you brought it up.

came out good though

what the fuck does that have to do with this?


why dont u learn how to read =P


haha, and antic's fuckin funny... thats what i was thinking at first, but that would be nearly impossible to do... and then i thought it was some special cap ive never heard of for spraying ur stencils.... shit im a toy too

but for people who are confused about the stencil cap...

its the lid for the can with a hole poked in it rigd up so u can still press down the nozzle... and the paint hits the inside of the lid, except the paint that goes through the little hole... so its spraying the same, just minus all the spray exept the pin sized hole in the lid

idk how much clearer i can make it
