I wanted to show everyone what goes in to making the stencil I use for each painting.

Here are 3 pictures, one is at 8 hours in, one at 16 hours in and the final at 22 hours.  Cut with an X-ACTO knife freehand.

Enjoy!!

    I have always loved your work! You are truly talented. With those skills, you could’ve been a surgeon 😉

  12. MojosWork says:

    You should double up and sell the stencils when you’re done with them, too. This is absolutely insane. in the greatest way possible.

  13. Very impressive, beautiful work

    Just so awesome…

    Very nice! My husband is an artist, and people as a general rule have no idea of the hours of development, design and prep work that goes into the finished piece they see. Let alone the idea development and finishing work. You have done a great service to those in the field with this nice little post! Thank you!

  27. How many uses can you get from each stencil?

  28. swo8 says:

    Are these stencils made of leather? I have a couple of stencils of Indian dancing girls in my living room.
