My current joyful pursuit of all things stenciled with embossing paste continues! This time, I used black paste through a scripty stencil over a white tag . . .
The skinny letters emerged crisp and non-mooshed – nice surprise! It's all about the paste, folks – certainly not because of any particular skill of mine . . .
The herringbone pattern on the smaller tag was stenciled with white pigment ink and then white embossed. I initially tried stenciling the herringbone design with white paste, but the color came out a sickly white instead of the crisp chalk white I wanted. So now I'm on the prowl for a true, pure white stenciling paste – anybody out there know of one?
