Art Journaling: Stenciled Pages

Using a stencil and some molding paste is a great way to add texture to your surface.

Step One:

Simply put the stencil down on your surface and use a palette knife to spread molding paste through it. Hold the knife at a 45-degree angle to keep the surface flat and even. If you're using a thicker stencil, you'll want to scrape the paste so that it is even with the top of the stencil.

Step Two:

Pull up the stencil and allow the paste to dry for about a half hour--you can use a heat tool to speed up the process. ARTIST TIP: Mix in some paint with the paste to tint it. If you're working in an art journal or with paper, use light molding paste.


Materials

  • Stencil
  • Molding Paste (Light Molding Paste for lighter papers)
  • Paint (small amount for tinting)
