Stencil Layering Tutorial With Ed Roth

Stencil Layering Tutorial With Ed Roth

Layering stencils creates an amazing effect - I love stenciling iconic imagery over a pattern. In this case, i am making art that is a two layer stencil of a deer over a pattern. Sort of a city-meets-country feel to it. I started by painting my board a neutral color.

 

 

I then mixed a little grey paint with the base color to slightly darken it for my pattern layer.

I stenciled my quatrefoil pattern on top of the solid painted board.

This stencil is designed to repeat like wallpaper so i moved it around to fill the board with the pattern.

Once dry, it was time for the silhouette layer of the Antlered Deer. I love this guy, he’s so confident. Anyway, I wanted to use some pop colors so I used a bright yellow as the base.

 

It took three coats to cover the pattern.

Once dry, I stenciled the deer detail layer in a deep blue. For detailed stencils, always go light with your paint, stenciling is a dry brush technique.
I can’t say that enough.
