Handcut Stencils

I have been drawing on transparencies for the past few days.

This one turned out great. I left off the antenna when I cut it and also cut it like a mask so that I could use it with spray inks and not have such a large border.

This is the fist stencil that I then am able to use as a heart because of the way it was cut.

This next one was created by stamping my handcarved chevron stamp onto a transparency and then going over it with a black permanent marker before I cut it.

Here it is after I tried it out on some dictionary paper with my Ranger Adirondack Paint Dabbers.

I cut this cross also so that I can have a thin version of the wood shape that I have.

Here is a few images to show you how I tested each of the ones that I cut.

I used various mediums with them to see how they would work.

This shows all of them in action using sprays marker and paint dabbers.

And to add a public service announcement to this post. Be careful with a heated cutting tool. It gets very hot and I burnt the tip of my thumb. So please use caution.
