Made for the Gallery Route One annual Box Show fundraiser. I turned a pinewood box into charcoal, then ground it up, combined it with distilled water and sap from my plumb tree to make black ink.

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).
