I normally hand cut my stencils using quilters template medium and an craft knife. I learned how to do this way back in the dark ages of my art classes at college. Using the template medium, I have discovered, makes for some very rough and jerky edges. For one of a kind stencils that won't be used more than once or twice, I will cut them out of freezer paper.
But this is a new method that I tried!
4 gauge clear vinyl over my drawing and traced it using a black Sparpie.
EZ Screen and following the directions I got this lovely screen for use with a pounce pad!
