Are you looking for painting stencils or stencils to mark out the shape of your lure?

If you have a photo editing program on your computer you can easily make stencils. Look on the internet and find a picture of a lure style you want to build. Save it to your computer and then open it in your photo editing program. Crop out the background leaving just the lure image. You then adjust the size and print it out. After printing cut out the lure image and glue it to a stiff paper backing. Cut the image out once the glue dries and you have a template that you can use multiple times. If you can find top and bottom views of the image you can make stencils for that as well. If no top or bottom views are available I just fake it and draw those in by hand.
If you don't have a photo editing program there are several free ones you can find on the internet.
