Thanks for popping in.
Had a real hankering to do a simple scrappy canvas
before I call it a day.
Was thinking about the kids a lot today, and this stencil by Annie just captures exactly what I want to say to them both.
So here’s a very simply black and white piece,
which speaks volumes.
Black copy paper scrap required.
This will do nicely.
Lay the stencil face down on the 8” x 10” Gelp Press Plate
Spread a small amount of Payne’s Gray Golden Open Acrylic
onto a brayer,
to spread onto the plate.
Peel off the stencil and flip it onto the scrap paper.
That’s it! That’s the new name for my kind of art.
Sandwich the stencil with another clean piece of copy paper.
Run the whole thing through a mangle.
Gemini works for me.
This clever machine presses the stencil with the paint really hard onto the paper, thereby transferring the paint.
And if you use a rubber mat in the sandwich too, just look how deeply the stencil embeds itself in the copy paper!
But back to the front….
Time to mount it.
Wrap the paper around the canvas board, cut the corners,
like so, and fold them into the back.
Then mount the A5 canvas onto the A4 canvas,
using double-sided adhesive sheet.
And dream on…
