In the first of three videos Linda explains how a simple stencil can be used to create both positive and negative shapes on paper and fabric using a range of products and techniques. First she uses Markal Paintstiks together with her handmade house and tree stencil to transfer the design onto strips of gorgeous hand dyed fabric. Next she shows how the same stencil works to produce very different visual effects with pump action bottle or aerosol spray paints. Finally she shows what can be achieved using discharge paste through the same stencil to remove colour from the fabric rather than add it!. Such a range of lovely results all from a single stencil!
