Look for camouflage clip art online or through an image editing program. You can also use image editing or other types of software to draw your own camouflage patterns for use on the stencil. Once you have the design you want to transfer to the stencil, print it out on acetate paper. Wait at least 10 minutes to allow the ink to dry completely before going any further. Place the printed pattern on a piece of cardboard, and cut away the parts of the stencil you want to paint using a craft knife.

With your completed stencil, you can use spray paint to apply the desired camouflage colors on whatever you wish, such as a vehicle, firearm or wall. The use of a stencil allows anyone to perform this job without requiring any artistic ability. While camouflage stencils are available for purchase online, by creating your own you have more control over the design and pattern and can completely customize the pattern to suit your preferences.
