Experimenting with Pochoir Prints (part 1)
Happy Fourth of July!

Experimenting with Pochoir Prints (part 2)

So yesterday I shared a little bit about the process of pochoir.  Today I thought I'd share what I made. (Yay!)  My first attempt resulted in these seven 5-color prints:

It was soooooo much fun to do!  And since I had done abstract, I wanted to try a more representational image.  I also wanted to figure out an easier method of registering the prints so that the stencils lined up. And I figured both out. Yay!

Here's the result:

I love this technique so much that I've put together a step-by-step how-to -- from cutting the stencils to registering them to printing them over and over again.  You can find that lesson in the Artful Holiday online classroom.  Class opens for registration today and begins on August 1, 2022.  If you sign up during July, you can use the code EARLYARTFUL to get 15% off.  Yay!

In the meantime, Monthly Members can get a sneak peek at this process during the replay of June's livestream.  This is the one I made as a demo during the livestream:

I hope to see you in class!
