Next, I begin to block out large sections of color on my girls. I am using all metallic paints for this. Some areas will have foil over them, others will not.
Remember the bottom portion of the panels that I foiled? I used this Scallop stencil from Royal Design Studio, which I absolutely love. This is the perfect design to embellish with gems, which I will do later! I used a metallic gold to stencil.
I added some gold foil to highlight some of the clothing on my girls and then used some stencils to add some pattern. This stencil is just a piece of a stencil I had left over from when I did those yellow and white stair treads. It’s quite dirty, and should be cleaned, but since I was only using it in a small area, I thought I’d give it a shot and use again, rather than spend time trying to clean this and possibly tear it.
A close up of my very dirty stencil from Royal Designs called Moorish Fleur de Lis. Don’t do as I do. Try to stay on top of it all and clean your stencils before they become so caked with paint!
