3-Layered Stencil Print


This post focuses on multi-layering.  Today's art sample started life as a Gelli Plate print using my stencil Facets.  Altho Facets is rectangular, measuring 9"x12", the background image here is round, since I used the 8-inch round Gelli Plate.   




The middle-layer print, made with green acrylic paint and a sponge applicator, was created using one of my just-released stencils, Curls.

The top layer was made with a 4-inch-wide sponge brayer, loaded with heavy-body yellow acrylic paint, using another new 6" x 6" stencil, Lines and Squares.

The original piece of paper was cut from one of those gigantic rolls of heavy-duty paper used by contractors and other builders, as a protective cover for hallway carpeting and similar areas.  It's tough paper, meant to be walked on and abused, but the "wrong" side of this paper is smooth -- and a shade of salmon-mauve that I find attractive.  I bought my roll of this paper in a household paint supply store.
