New Work...Old Technique




My method for developing today's pieces started with the "stencil-and-stain" technique that was part of the members-only StencilClub package of June 2015.   To receive this package (which includes a video showing the technique in action & the 3-part stencil-set Crop Circles) just visit StencilGirlTalk.com -- and use the right side bar to become a StencilClub member.   Once a member, send an email to stencilgirlproducts@gmail.com, citing the month-and-year package that you want to buy; then, StencilGirlProducts will provide you with a invoice through PayPal.

Below is a 9"x12" canvas that's still in progress, but it's far enough along to be shown, along with some close-ups of its surface; I'll start with the close-ups:









Above is the piece in its entirety.  It will be finished after I add deeper, darker orange above and below the green-blue focal point in the upper right.  I will also enhance the focal area by gluing on part of a stencil that was stained while working on this project.  (The "stencil-and-stain" method leaves stencils pretty much permanently stained.) 

6"x6" stencils used:

Kaleid

Mimosa 6

Palm Fronds Silhouette Small

Swatton Grid Stencil
