Week 1: Stencil Work

Our next task was to make stencils out of card or cardboard, and to use them with art supplies to create our letter on paper or other materials. I did the rune design again but chose to do it the right way up, but the design could always be turned on its side to resemble the Alpha I had done before. I drew the rune with black soft pastel as it was quite dark and noticeable on the brown card, and began to cut it out. Once I had done that, I chose a few different media to use. I went for paint splattering for one, painting the design for another, and drawing the outline using soft pastel for the last. As I am not yet too confident with stencil work, I think my first attempt was okay, but if I were to attempt this in the future, I might choose a different medium or use cardboard instead of card, as the card was quite light and flimsy.
