In preparation for the class I have been cutting stencils in a new way. I am using:
- cutting more detailed designs
- creating designs with a square edge
Then I did some printing with the gelatin plate. I noticed that Tyvek has a texture. I think it may change when the ink starts to build up.
Tyvek is so nice to cut with a nice sharp blade. It is strong and lasts very long time. I have been collecting images and ideas for things that I might want to cut during the workshop.
I am gathering shadow images and skyline photos and magazine clippings.
Maybe I can use some everyday images to make a interesting and person stencil or two.
I could simplify this complex shadow into a couple of different stencils.
