i was wondering if you guys would like to share your experience regarding copyright issues with your stencil projects?!
i understand that there are obviously restrictions when using pictures found on the net. fair enough, if we download a picture (e.g google NOT stock photos), alter it with digital software (make it stencilable) and transfer it to a canvas and hang the piece on our living room wall no one would be too concerned, i guess!! the real copyright issues might arise when you are thinking of selling your art...and actually do so...
surely, the best way would be to use your own pictures/photos exclusively. i work hard to build up my own stock material as i go along (have the camera with me) but everyone knows this is not always an option.
to keep out of trouble and be respectful with the property of others:
---what are the DO´s and DON´T´s?
---are there guidelines/info you can recommend?
---where do YOU get your stencil pictures/photos?
i´d love to read about your opinions here!
