Stencil Art

Over the past couple of weeks we have been working on a project that involves making a stencil and then spray painting the image.

We started off by finding a picture that related to our theme, the beach. I chose a lobster. I used Photoshop to change the coloring to black and white. I projected the image onto the white board and traced it onto a poster board then cut out the traced image. After completing my stencil, I painted a wooden frame and spray painted a large piece of cardboard. I placed the stencil on the painted cardboard and spray painted the image onto the cardboard. I stapled the cardboard onto the frame to complete the project.

I really liked how this project came out. It was fun and a change of pace to what we had been doing. What I don't like about my project is the stencil. It could have been better and have more detail. In some places the legs are to attached and just look like a blob. Overall, this project came out really well.
