    You're way more invested in stencils than I am :) I actually don't bother with stencils at all but thinking of starting to play around with it. Actually, a PDF of the blank template would be really helpful! :D

    Anyone recognizes it? I thought it would match the blue strings in some ways....

    Been wanting to do this for ages and fortunately (or unfortunately) both strings broke on same night.

    Which is the better type of stencil ink, water based or solvent based? Pretty sure the ink I have now is water based, wondering if solvent based lasts any longer as long as no damage is done to the strings.

    My water based ones are very wet when applying and wear quickly.
    My regular Victor and Yonex ones are cleaner to apply and wear a lot less.

    What are the best way to keep the head in good condition so that it doesn't dry up or wear out? I'm finding that the head wear out first before getting near the bottom.

    It usually fades where you hit it with the shuttle. Just reapply some ink again when it becomes too faded.
