"Hot Glue Stencil Do" by Unicia R. Buster

“Hot Glue Stencil Do” by Unicia R. Buster

I saw a YouTube video on making hot glue stencils and thought I’d try it. (Hot Glue Stencil Tutorial)

I had a difficult time with it because I didn’t have an appropriate surface to work on. I had to literally scrape it off the plastic I used. Also, I forgot to make sure all the lines were connected, so the nose fell off. And because I scraped it, the result stencil was curly and wouldn’t lay flat. On top of all of this, I didn’t have anything to spray the paint with so I tried to brush it on. Needless to say, I made a mess of it. I will try it again one day (but not anytime soon). I drew her face back in with color pencil.

Watercolor and color pencils. (Stencil made using hot glue and a hot glue gun.)
