I bought some vintage stencils last year in Japan with a plan to stencil the designs on my hand dyed fabrics
This one seemed to have a great design so it was my first attempt
I also felt like the circular motion I used had the potential to damage some of the edges of the stencil.
My decision was to scan the stencils and convert them to thermofax screens. This way I will be able to screen print the designs much more easily without damaging the vintage screens.
I'll post my results when they are done.
