Sometimes I get very excited about a new stencil design and when I saw 'moths to a flame' being removed from the cutting bed I was itching to put the stencil to good use.
I still had two of my work placement students with me at the time so I offered them the challenge of stencilling the ceiling around a light. They did this with acrylic interference paints which are suitable for walls and fabric. The intensity of the colour changes with the light.
The 'Moths to a flame' stencil is designed to fit around a light fitting. The size can be altered if needed. Soon I shall re use my butterfly stencil onto a dress and I shall re employ some of the single motifs to fly in a haphazard line toward the central cluster.
Once the stencil had been cut I saved all the little cut out shapes in a bag with the idea of using them to create a frosted window.....when I eventually relocate the mislaid bag I shall experiment with this idea. The intention is to adhere the butterfly/moth shapes to the glass then spray around them with frosting spray. I will then peel off the shapes to reveal a frosted window with clear shapes of butterflies to look through. If you are ordering this stencil, you can request some cut outs too.
