Stencil-Scraping with FANTASIA

With one of my 3 brand-new 9"x 12" stencils, Fantasia, I went back to an old technique that I've shown in earlier posts.

This technique works best with a thin but sturdy substrate that has a smooth surface -- like Lineco tissue and deli paper.  (Note:  Lineco tissue is much stronger than the tissue paper you buy to slip into gift-bags.  Gift-wrap tissue will not work.)

Here, instead of Lineco tissue or deli paper, I used a pre-stretched canvas made by Fredrix especially for watercolor -- it has a very smooth surface, ideal for picking up detailed shapes in stencils with large openings.  (Stencils with small openings will work, too, but not as well.)

The 9" x 12" stencil Fantasia looks like this:

The stencil-and-scrape technique is shown and described here.
