Default Wet Stencil Technique

Another super easy technique to create amazing backgrounds for your stamped art!

You will need a stencil (shown below), water mister, watercolor crayons, and watercolor paper.

-Mist stencil with water.
-Color the misted stencil with watercolor crayons. Be sure to color well around the edges of the cut-out design.
-Mist again.
-Lay a piece of watercolor paper on top of wet stencil. Roll a brayer over the paper so all areas touch the stencil.
-Let dry. Use as desired.

*Brass stencils are easy to use, but plastic ones work too.
*Try other types of paper.
*Use other coloring mediums instead of watercolor crayons.
*Use a can of soup if you don't have a brayer; or fingers to press the paper onto the stencil.

Have fun. Experiment. Show us what you do with the Wet Stencil Technique.

Try taking thick watercolor (bricks or tubes) putting it in the stencil with a brush and then misting! My next effort is twinkling H20s...which are brick like watercolors with mica powder mixed in........if it works...it may be my next technique swap!

Try smooshing an ink pad on it, then spritzing. Let us know if it works.

Barbara Reed explained her variation of the Wet Stencil Technique to me and is letting me share it and her NEAT card. I hope I understood the instructions right. If I misunderstood, I will correct these instructions.

She uses a plastic stencil (shown below).

Smear ink pad on ceramic tile (or craft sheet) and spritz ink with water.
Place plastic stencil on top of wet ink.
Put the cardstock right on top of the stencil and roll the brayer over the card.
(You may need to mask some areas of the stencils that you don't want to use.)
