Nathalie Kalbach and Stencil Girls Products Blog Hop



Welcome to Nathalie Kalbach and Stencil Girl Products Blog Hop

As many of you already know, my friend Nathalie (n*studio) has designed several Stencils for Stencil Girl Products and she is organizing a blog hop for everyone to know them.

You can imagine how happy I am for her and how honoured I feel for being part in this week's blog hop, together with a group of excepcionally creative women. Thank you so much for inviting me Nat!

We all used the Crackle stencil for our projects. One of my favourites.

It is perfect for backgrounds and so versatile for any artistic proyect. the design of the holes in random sizes and layout makes it look like real crackles

Bienvenidos al Blog Hop de Nathalie Kalbach and Stencil Girl products

Como muchas sabéis, mi amiga Nathalie ha diseñado una colección de stencils para Stencil Girl Products y para darlos a conocer ha organizado diversos blog hops

Os podéis imaginar lo feliz que estoy por ella y lo entusiasmada que estoy de participar en el blog hop de esta semana, junto con un grupo de mujeres excepcionalmente creativas. Muchas gracias por la invitación Nat!

El stencil que hemos utilizado para nuestros proyectos es uno de mis favoritos. Un craquelado.
Es perfecto para fondos y muy versátil para utilizar en cualquier proyecto artístico. El diseño de los huecos de distintos tamaños y la disposición caótica de los mismos hace que el resultado sea muy similar a un craquelado real.



For my project I altered a terracotta pot (1)
Hold the stencil around the pot and secure it with masking tape (2)
Apply a generous coat of texture paste (3)
Lift the stencil and let it dry (clean the stencil asap) (4)
Once dry, sand the surface a bit, to make it even and one by one paint the crackles with the new Kuretake's Wink of Stella brush in golden colour. (5)
If you apply more than a layer of paint in several crackles randomly, you'll get a great effect of lights and shadows (6 and 7)

That's it. A pot with personality. I hope you like it.

Yo he alterado una maceta de terracota (1) 
Una vez sujeto el stencil con cinta de carrocero (2), aplico una capa gruesa de pasta de textura (3) 
Levantar el stencil y dejar secar (4) - limpia el stencil en cuanto puedas
Una vez seco, paso una lija para igualar el grosor y uno a uno, coloreo los trocitos de craquelado con el pincel dorado Wink of Stella Brush de Kuretake. (5)
Aplicando aleatoriamente distintas capas con el pincel, el efecto del brillo del craquelado destaca luces y sombras (6 y 7)

Listo, una maceta con personalidad :)

Espero que os guste. 



And now, do not miss what these artists made with the stencil.
