OK - Normally when we think about using stencil designs we imagine pressing paint into the openings. Right now I’m going to ask you to wipe that image out of your mind because we are going to use these free stencils in some
Christmas Art Projects in a whole new way.
Need to know more about basic stencil painting? Stippling is simply tapping or dabbing the loaded brush throughout the stencil openings. This technique produces a more even tone and less depth.
Swirling is moving the brush in a circular, swirling motion against the openings. This technique produces an effect of depth because more color will be along the edges of the openings and the centers will appear lighter. I always think of the swirling technique if you are trying to produce a finished image that has a worn down, vintage look.
Practice these techniques on these Printable Christmas Stencils!
If you are new to stenciling you should go to
How To Stencil.
Are you new to working with paper stencils? If so (or even if not) you should know that you can prepare your paper stencils so that they can be used again and again. Yeah! That’s right. The one you just printed can become a long term free stencil. It’s easy.
Do you have some of that clear, wide packing tape? Just use it to run even strips covering all of the paper surfaces before you cut out the stencil. Burnish or rub the tape down to get the air pockets out. That’s it.
By the way, I like to do just the top side of the paper. If the bottom is slick it can encourage paint to bleed under the stencil and smudge your surface. The underside may get wet when you wash it but just let it dry and flatten it back out by storing it in a book.
Working with paper stencils has a few advantages. You can adjust the size of your paper stencil to fit the size of your project. Just take the page to a copier and reduce or enlarge. Then cut out the stencil openings. It's that easy. Try it on these Printable Christmas Stencils.
