I purchased another stash of vintage plastic doilies from e-bay. I was pretty excited about all the different varieties I received. A couple were useless for my art as all the portions in between the designs were covered in clear plastic. I like to use the plastic doilies as stencils and am currently working on a canvas series using them. I did get enough to make it worth my while so I am pretty excited.
Check out all the detail…
I was kind of excited to see how they would work so I pulled out my art journal, different paints and inks. This first one had lots of blank space in the design so it would have worked with anything but I tried a spray.
Here is what it looked like once I pulled it up. Love it!!!
The next one had a bit finer detail and I tried it with a paint dabber.
That didn’t work out so well, haha!
I got this really cool, extremely long one that I will be using in my sign but I tried it out here with some paint and my finger.
The last one I tried was to finish a painting I have been working on. I wanted to add some texture to an urn and used an oval shaped one.
Here is how it turned out. Not sure yet if I like it as I got a little impatient and didn’t fill it all in entirely.
I am going to share the wealth and put some sets together to sell in my shop. Last time I put some up they sold in days. They should be up by the weekend :)
