here are some proofs from the stencils i've been cutting. it's a lot harder to make the complicated stencils than i thought. i'm making a stencil book for publication. i'm trying to put a different focal image on each page. i think i'm using about 16 pages, four images per page. that's a lot of stencils!
this buddha one is giving me fits. i just can't get the face right. one of them looks like a ninja buddha to me! it's a little hard to do because you have to move the burner rapidly enough so that it doesn't burn a big circle in the mylar. but i would like to spend more time to get it right. hopefully next time.
i think the girl with her head in her hands is my favorite. i do really like that hisbiscus on the right too. i think i may have spray painted it upside down in my actual book. whoops!
here's my setup for cutting.
