Default "Classy Brass"

I don't know how many people remember these stencils, but I was digging through another drawer to clean out and found a bunch of these. Could we use these with sponge daubers for backgrounds? I can't use them the old way due to arthritis.

I would try it – they're usually pretty thick so you may have to work to get down in the openings. I was just thinking yesterday that I'm going to put mine through my Big Shot If it gets bent no loss as I'm not using it anyway, but it matches an old SU stamp set that I have so it's worth a shot.

I have a mass of brass stencils- mainly unused these days! I did find this You Tube video, if you have a die cutting machine, it may be useful. Its for a 'bug, but you could figure out the sandwich for another machine, I'd think.
You can definitely sponge inks/chalks through them though.

Run a sheet of white paper thru your Xyron then place your brass stencil on it and sprinkle glitter over it. Shake off glitter and sprinkle glitter over remaining glue.

I have sponged with the brass stencils. I have also done what is called stippling: using a stenciling brush. pouncing the inked brush onto/through the openings in the stencil.

Here is an older example of a card

And another one

The pandas were stippled thru' a flat, brass xmas ornament from San Diego Zoo

You can also use smaller paint brushes that are flat on the end, not pointed or rounded.

I saved my stipple brushes and I have paint brushed so now I'm excited to try! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the info. I was just thinking about getting rid of mine. I have not used those in years, and I have a ton of them. I used to emboss by hand all the time years ago... when I was on the Ark.

Depending on the designs, I would try using them with embossing paste/caulk to add dimension to a paper project.

Phantoms idea is a good one, I forgot to suggest using stencil pastes with them. Dreamweaver make a wide range of colours and finishes of paste, and I believe she has at least one video about it on the Dreamweaver site.

You don't need to buy different color pastes, Just buy regular (white) and mix in a few drops of acrylic paint on a palette to get colored paste. Better yet buy Golden's light molding paste from the artist section -- typically you'll get much more paste for your money and it color mixes and works with stencils beautifully.
