SASSY SPRAY -- Post Chop-Shop


Following in the footsteps of many of my earlier stencils, Sassy Spray, one of my newest 6" x 6" stencils, has been to the chop-shop.

This time, the alterations weren't major.  I merely customized the edges, using my Joyce Chen scissors -- perfect for stencil-cutting because they're sharp and have short blades.  

To make today's posted artwork, I used two of these altered stencils together:





I'm not at liberty to describe the technique that I used to start this painting, since it was shown on a video that's included in the June 2015 Stencil-of-the-Month package for StencilGirls' StencilClub members.  It can be back-ordered; directions are here

But that process was only the start of this particular acrylic painting, done on 12" x 9" gallery-wrap canvas. 

After that first step, I used a variety of sizes of flat-tipped brushes to add yellow highlights in emphasizing areas of the design.  I also added a number of layers of zinc white acrylic paint to mute areas of lesser interest.  And I used a nearly-empty bottle of this paint to add a spatter in the lower middle area.

Sassy Spray in its entirety looks like this:
