This is beautiful I will be back Thursday to find out!DIANA L.http://dianamlarson.blogspot.com
Jessica I adore how you use this stencil. Fabulous cape! I have a question. How do you clean the stencil girl products stencil? I use it with watercolor. Thanks a lot! :)
Hi Elisa - If you're using stencils with watercolor, you will want to clean them since each time you wet them, you will activate them. You can clean them with a baby wipe, or spritz them with water and wipe them with a paper towel. If I have a bunch, I will sometimes take them in the shower with me! Just make sure you dry them well and they'll be ready for your next use!
Thanks Jessica! :) One last question please... As I use a stencil in watercolor with my brush, I noticed that the paint also gets under the stencil. The result is that I wasn't able to get the exact stencil shape but a smudge one--with all the paint that gets underneath. I hope I make sense. Any advice? Thanks a lot!
If you're using watercolors from a tube or tablet (as opposed to sprays), then I would recommend applying them to the stencil with a cosmetic sponge, which will absorb a lot of the water. You need to mix a paste that is very saturated with color and as "dry" as possible. If you're using your brush, angle it so you brush from the plastic on the stencil toward the opening. I hope that makes sense. This way, you are directing your paint away from the open edges. Let me know how it works out!!
wow his is amazing, the colors are so rich, she is lovely and the intrigue is awe inspiring
Beautiful work with the stencil Jessica! So creative! I love the 3D effect - is it embossing?
Pretty amazing cape, love how this turned out, working on my pieces for Thursdays post. xox
Oh you're such a tease. Can't wait to see what everyone does. I can only imagine it will be a great RIDE.
Wonderful lady with a gorgeous cape. It has a beautiful design, which I just could imagine to work out in fabric. :-)
Thud. That's the sound my chin made when I saw this incredible cape. I love the way your mind works!! This is just totally, 100%, fantastic.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. I really appreciate it!
