Hot Glue Stencils

Here is a little video I did for Diana Trout's blog last week.  Traci Bautista told me about making these cool stencils with a glue gun, so I tried it.  This video is my first attempt.

For the real deal, and several more fabulous stencil-making techniques, go to Traci's Blog Post.  This and other of her fabulous techniques are featured in her new book "Printmaking Unleashed", which is forthcoming in July.  I've already pre-ordered mine.
This is the paper I made, which will go into my collage stash.

  6. Another terrific way to add layers and complexity. I have to try this with my encaustic hot table. I appreciate the innovation. I will try.

  7. I am off to try this right now!!!!! Parchment paper? That sounds pretty fancy and I don't have any… can I use deli or wax paper?
    Thanks, Jane for another informative and fun blog post! And thanks for the update on the Girls.

    1. Ha! Haven't seen you on my blog for a while. You can use teflon sheets, but not deli paper or wax paper, I don't think. Parchment is found in the baking section of your grocery store. Have fun! For more info go to Traci's post; there is a link in my post under the video.

    1. I have no idea. But it's one with two temperature settings. Look at Traci's post, she may have more information on this.

  11. Love the video, and THANKS!!.. but I have one question. How do you store your hot glue stencils?? I have an apartment that gets very warm in the Summer season (no air conditioning), so I hesitate to just throw the collection, piling them up in some box/container, where they probably will stick together or maybe even remelt into each other? I'm thinking maybe I should loosely hang them?.. like on a peg board, perhaps? ~tina

    1. How about storing them between sheets of wax paper? Or in a binder in page protectors?
