During the past couple of months, I've been working on new stencil designs for Stencil Girl Products which will be introduced to the public later this year. While I was working on the new designs, my colleague, Michelle Ward, announced the release of her new stencils that she designed exclusively for The Ink Pad in New York City. A month ago, we talked about using both of her stencil, NYC Skyline, and my stencil, City Scape, together to create a city skyline of New York City.
At first, I had to test out different layering and ordering before I come up with the final result as soon above. I started first with Michelle's stencil using black gesso and cosmetic sponge, and worked from it with my City Scape stencil with acrylic paint in lighter colors (above and below the NYC Skyline stencil), creating a foggy or misty atmosphere. After I have successfully achieved the depth that I was looking for, I took a photo of the stenciled image and add the text digitally to the photo. The result is that it looks like a poster for New York City and I'm pleased with the result.
The City Scape stencil can be purchased from Stencil Girl Products' website here or from The Ink Pad in New York City.
The NYC Skyline stencil is available exclusively from The Ink Pad - it can be purchased either from their website or from their store in NYC.
