A brass stencil was used to make this butterfly. Artist pastels were used to stencil it onto watercolor paper. Next, with the stencil in place tape off all edges with removable tape. Then, apply embossing paste with a knife or spatula, swiping off extra paste and replacing in jar. Lift stencil without sliding it, remove tape and place stencil and spatula in water immediately! Lastly, I sprinkled clear glitter on butterfly and let it dry. Artist pastel colors will be very clear when dry.
