Thanks OSB i think ill have to divide into eighths, ibe been messing around all afternoon into early evening trying to work out the right scale and curve in photoshop so when printed it matches the curve of the form, i have a very close match

I designed a stencil like a tribal bezier curve design and i liked it, then when bent and shaped in 3dsmax to fit the model it did what i though it would , compress the top of the design and stretch the bottom so a re design was needed :/

Anyways its done and cut up into eigths, ill masking tape the hollowform then 3m spray the stencil sections onto the masking tape, any mismatching before piercing ill just blend it with the power carver i have :)
