Well my project this month started life as a paper mache box. I paint it with black gesso, two coats. I used two coats as it is very absorbment.
I then taped the beautiful Madeline Stencil into place on the lid.
Next I used a white gloss gel and gently spread it over the whole of the stencil, and then carefully lifted it off. It was perfect. I was then a little impatient when going to stencil the sides and touched to top on the box just as I was finishing hence the not perfect image on the lid.
For the side panels I masked off all wound the area I wanted to use in this case the flower and the stem and again passed the gel through the stencil. This is tricky as I was using a curved small area of the stencil.
Leave to dry and then it’s finished.
As you will notice a little bit of touching up with back gesso, for one of two tiny bit of gel which when under the stencil. I had to take the pictures while the touch up was still drying. Well it has been a bit of a crazy month.
I love this stencil and using it in different ways.

Bye for now.
