Step 6. Create the
Re-Open the .PSD image you saved earlier. Flatten the Image (Layer>Flatten
Image) and Save the image as white.JPG. Use the Magic Wand tool, and select
the area outside of the body, and fill this image with the Gray Foreground.
Now, use the Magic Wand to select some of the black, right click>select
Similar. Fill this selection with the Gray Foreground as well.
Next, use the Magic Wand and select the white area, right click>Select
Similar. Go to Edit>Fill and fill it with Black.
Next, go to Selection>Inverse and Edit>Fill and fill it with White.
Click in a blank area to deselect. Just as we did in the previous step,
we DON’T want any white islands, so use the Eraser tool and connect
them with other white areas so that everything that’s white flows
into each other. If the island is way-out in a sea of black, then just
leave it alone. REFER to Step 5. After you’ve cleaned the image,
Adjust the Brightness & Contrast and move both sliders to 100%.
Re-Save. And to Find the Outlines… Filter>Stylize>Find Edges.
Re-Save. DOWNLOAD THE WHITE LAYER
Step 7. Layer the stencils to create the Multi-Layer Stencil.
Now you have 3 separate stencils. The Black is the Bottom Layer, the
Gray is the second Layer, and the White is the Top Highlight Layer.
You should allow 15-20 minutes for each layer to dry before adding the
next one. Spray Paint the Stencils on a Different Color Background to
give it that Pop-Art Look.
