I just did pinbot with pimp stencils. You certainly need to hustle lifting the stencils and sometimes you need three hands when pulling up the pieces. I too put down too much paint, ended up with paint spider lines to clean up. BEST ADVICE, let it dry before attempting touch up.

All in all it came out fairly nice. Of course Im probably pushing 50 repaints. Gottlieb Wedgeheads are so mush easier.

When I want the fussy edge effect I'll use home made oil board stencils. Diamond Jack is one I did with oil board

I got to work on my webbing...

Quoted from timab2000:

Great idea but...how many times can you continue to paint the same machine?
I think this is where the vinyl stencil has the advantage. (business wise) You only get to use it once. It can't be re-sold to someone else You get one shot and that's it. Forcing the next person who has the same machine to go out and buy one for themselves. I hope that made sense.
But yeah the results you are getting are nice! Well done!

Ive repainted 5 KingOfDiamonds/Diamond Jacks... do have a set of oil board stencils I reuse. Kings and Queens is another popular tittle.

So it depends if its just for your self or you are doing work for others... Atlantis is another where I could use this...

Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

This is a good thread Tim, picked up a couple good pointers.
Is there a recommendation for altering the stencil to make it easier to pull up? That’s the part I’m not fully grasping. Perhaps cutting it into 3 smaller sections to lift instead of one huge stencil?
How did you do your touch ups again?

Depending on the art I have a pair of scissors handle and cut the stencil as to avoid dragging pieces thru fresh paint. Just need to look at which direction to start from. Pinbot is a tough one. Lots of little pieces to pick out.
