Stained glassPosted: October 24, 2016 Filed under: Hypnotic | Tags: Brusho, Penny Black stencils 20 Comments
A month or so ago I spent some crafty hours playing with stencils, texture paste and brusho powders. I was spurred on by a friend who had achieved some beautiful results. This panel, which reminds me of a stained glass window, is one of my favourites from that day.
I taped the stencil to a piece of watercolour paper so part of the design would be exposed and framed. I spread a thin layer of paste through the stencil then sprinkled brusho paints over the top. With the stencil still in place I spritzed the whole thing so the brusho would react. The result is the blurry, spotty patterns you see below. Once I’d spritzed I carefully removed the stencil and let the panel dry; it took quite a while.
Because I had framed the pattern with tape I was able to trim the border to about 1/4″ and then pop it up on a card base and add a sentiment. I am still enjoying my time in Australia with family; I’ve posted a few photos on my other blog, Sentient.

This is absolutely stunning. I never would have thought of this technique but want to try it ASAP. Thanks for sharing this Heather. You are amazingly talented!
Just stunning, I am going to try this, but was wondering how the brusho and water did not bleed under the stencil
Gorgeous! Did you let the paste dry first? Thanks1
I have passed this post on to a couple of friends who are still not feeling confident with their watercolour powders. This is so bright and vibrant!
