Stencils

All stencils are 12 x 24 inches or 8 x 24 inches in size mixed in the set. The material is heavy card stock and will last for years. This is a great tool to make you an artist without the years of learning. Create realistic backgrounds quickly with an airbrush or spray paint. All stencils are researched, and taken from the prototype. The how to video "The Sky's the Limit" can teach you how to become a master at using these stencils to create an original background with a professional look.

Examples:
The background image above shows clouds created using "the clouds" and "the details" stencils. You can also see some cloud obscured mountains created with the "mountains" and "mountains II" stencils.

The background in the image to the left shows mountains, hills, and clouds created with the "mountains", "mountains II", "the clouds", "the details", and "the hills" stencils.


The misty background in the image to the right was created using the "mountains", "mountains II", "the hills", "the clouds", and "the details" stencils. Notice how the softness of the mist and atmosphere is so easily achieved using the stencils and an airbrush or can of spray paint. Of course the how-to video "the sky's the limit" explains the whole process in detail.
