TARDIS stencil by adams-ransom TARDIS stencil by adams-ransom
A while back I made a Dr Who hoodie for one of my friends, and fully intended to put the stencil up. I recently got reminded, and here it is!

I scaled it so it fit an A4 piece of paper, and my stenciling technique can be found here: [link]
Just cut out the black bits and you're good to go.

You could take the easy way out though, and just print it on to an A4 sticker or something. I should point out that there are some details present on the stencil that were too finickey for me to do - the writing on the police box, and a few elements at the top left of the stencil. If you do use my stencil I hope you post a pic up on devart and send me the link. And if you figure out how to incorporate the writing, I'd love to know how :D

ETA: I know this sounds like a crazy request, but if you do use this stencil, could you please credit me? Nothing absurd, but a link in your description would be nice. I've seen a few people who have used this stencil taking credit for the design of it in the comments section on their deviation rather than the application of it. I'm not asking for much, just a link back :)

I love the simplicity of the design! Minimalistic but still easily recognizable!

Oh neat! Has the vid gone up yet? I've never been brave enough to tye dye anything, so  it sounds like your vid might suit my needs as well as being a small ego boost :p

Thank you so much. I love the stencil and used it on a messenger bag. I wasn't able to do the text and just did a blank sign block, which I think turned out well. Thanks again, I credited you on the imgur pic and on Reddit. [link]

Wow, that looks amazing! You did a really great job - my stencils rarely come out looking that neat and tidy when I actually apply them to things/

This is JUST what I needed. My sister and I have recently gotten into Doctor Who and I'm planning on painting a jewelry box with the TRADIS on it as apart of her Christmas present. Thank you so much! :D

I went nuts a few summers back trying to do the same thing - all dark blues were warm tones instead of cool, oh the horror! But I hope to see a picture if you do stencil one up :)

Hi adams-ransom,
Your stencils are great! Are you ever thinking about selling them as wall decal?
Itīs an interesting new wall art design and we are just starting a project where Artists around the world can offer there vector graphics. Itīs named TapeRay.
And the best for you as an artist is, that you can decide how much you want to have per artwork square meters.
You can ask me, if you have problems to convert your artworks to vector graphics.
It’s really easy and I can do that for you.
Please contact me (marcel@taperay.com) or have just a look at [link]

All the best, cheers
Marcel

Thanks for the heads up, it looks like an interesting site. My big qualm at the moment is that the terms for artists are in German, which I can't read. I'll head back once it's launched and check it out :)

So I was searching for a really cool picture for a tattoo. Really wanted the Tardis. And found your stencil. Saw you already gave permission for someone else to use it as a tattoo and worked a bit with my tattoo artist and got it done this weekend. Not as detailed as your stencil but pretty close. Here it is: [link]

Oh, this will have to go on my tote bag with my femme!Eleven costume.. it just has to. (If you still want, once I'm done - aka once I get access to a sewing machine, guh - I'll stick a photo up.)

Thanks for uploading such an awesome stencil!

I ended up not using it, unfortunately D: I only had very, very thin cardboard which broke when I attempted to use it. I'm trying to cut out a small one and just ballpoint-then-paint onto my bag this time around :3

Ugh, yeah, making the actual stencil sucks. I used an overhead transfer film to avoid tearing, but I've had problems with paint bleeding under them in the past.

Not fancy, just fiddly. I've seen people use ice cream containers to make stencils before. Anything thick that won't go soggy with paint can work.

Considering how good your stencils are, I'm surprised you even bothered to use mine! How did you manage to put text on your designs so neatly?

Haha, maybe I need to clarify when I say that I "make" mine. I use a program to do it and it's a pain because I need the right picture with the right lighting to do it, lol. It was REALLY hard to find a good picture of the Tardis to do it with and your stencil was just so great. The text, I actually used a stencil that a friend of mine had, but altered it. And I used a very small tipped brush and had a lot of patience, lol.
