This is NOT an original idea from me I’m just passing on the info:
I have been making my own masks and stencils out of…
Clear Contact book covering
Mag/brochure/news paper images
And a craft knife
First choose your picture you would like as a stencil
Next cover it back and front with the clear contact
After that cut out parts that you want the paint to show through
You are done!
Cut some – test, cut more of the image out – test again. Keep repeating till you get what you want.
Or you can just do around the outside of an image like this….
This type of mask can double up with both the positive and the negative of the image being used.
Choose an image that has openings where the arms and legs are… Those images are alot more effective as masks/stencils.
Hope you have fun doing this. I am – prob far too much…
Ohhh i did a tutorial vid!
Till next time…. Stay crafty!
