All of my stencils are freehand drawn and cut, using permanent markers and an x-acto knife. (*No digital manipulation or tracing involved). The stencil material is .005mm acetate.

 

I have painted/applied my stencils using a variety of methods onto numerous surfaces. Originally I only used spray paint onto paper. However, spray paint is very toxic to the environment and eventually ruins the acetate stencil, so I decided to explore alternatives. These alternatives include, watercolor, home made inks such as redwood, blackberry, and earth inks (made out of dirt water and maple syrup).
