I got stuck in the first lesson as I discovered that I cannot stand spray paint. Since then I have been researching alternatives. Mary Ann suggested some possibilities such as spray inks but I couldn't find them where I live (Australia pretty far from any big cities.) The same for the spray bottles she suggested.
I have been experimenting. Today it didn't go well. I bought what I thought was EZ-cut stencil film, but when I began cutting stencils I discovered it is opague! I am not sure what I bought.
So then I tried using tracing paper. That didn't work so well. Of course it didn't! tracing paper is notoriously sensitive to humidity, much less spraying watered down ink on it! (the ink is another experiment). You can see the 'stencil' in the background, all curled up and pathetic.
For the spray ink, I watered down some refill ink. I don't recommend the brand I used, VersaMagic, as it was way too thick. Actually at this point, I don't recommend pretty much anything that I am doing. Just thought I would share.
