Stencil-Lift Technique with Wet Media

Above are two examples of using a stencil in the subtractive technique.  In both, I used wed media.  Watercolor would have worked but I happened to use acrylics.  It's easy to do:  Lay down a coat of wet paint; press on a stencil; use a soft cloth or paper towel to rub away the areas that show thru the openings of the stencil.  Lift the stencil.  Done!

I've discovered a similar technique, using dry media; it's a form of scratch-art ...

The stencil I used in creating my two above examples is one of my favorites -- Feathers and Lattice by Daniella Woolf --
