Mixed Media Must-Haves

Our Stencil1 Small Pattern stencils are great for all mixed media projects! Every pattern adds a different dimension to your project, just like the Stencil1 Hexagon Pattern stencil.

Use it with the Stencil1 Sprayers spray ink to add color and texture. Its translucent quality also creates depth with every layer you add! Finish off your mixed media project with a bold stencil such as the Stencil1 Butterfly stencil.

This mixed media technique is perfect for home décor, cards, and more. Share your mixed media projects with us @Stencil1 !

Stencil1 + Levi’s + CRUSHfanzine – adding meaning to a party

untitled-13

Last night, we had a three-hour stenciling party with Levi’s in their Meatpacking shop and it was a fun one. Ed Roth, owner and designer of Stencil1, created custom stencils with messages such as LOVE, COME TOGETHER, and LOVE NEVER FAILS as well as provided some iconic Stencil1 designs for people to choose form and have their tote bags or denim customized. The event was put together to showcase the newly re-designed Levi’s® Meatpacking Store, featuring exclusive pieces fromthe Levi’s® Vintage Clothing, Levi’s® Made & Crafted, and Levi’s® Authorized Vintage collections.

“I designed and cut some of these stencils with messages of love right before the event day and hoped people would like them as many were disappointed and worried after the election. The event became emotional for me as many people told me why they liked these messages of love as well as said things like they needed this right now. It went from a leisurely creative event to something of more substance.”

All the paint used was provided by Pebeo, their fabric paint helped to customize tote bags, denim vests, trucker jackets, and even a leather jacket.  High quality paints, we recommend them.

CRUSHfanzine was the media sponsor and invited a great group of people. See some pics of the event-goers below and visit the Stencil1 Facebook page to see many more. Photos by Sebastian Jimenez.

The Levi’s® Store Meatpacking is located at 414 West 14th NYC, NY 10014

Cheers and thank you to all who came together!

Stencil1 + Levis – A night of customization with Ed Roth of Stencil1, hosted by CRUSHfanzine

Levis_revemp_newsletter_1117

Stencil1 is pleased to announce they will be curating another event with Levi’s, this time in their newly re-designed Levi’s® Meatpacking Store.

Guests are encouraged bring your Levi’s® denim or pick out something new for customization by Ed Roth of Stencil1. Ed has added some new custom designs due to the political climate, messages of love and unity.

“I am particularly excited about this event because I not only get to work with Levi’s again, a brand I greatly admire, but also it is in their custom specialty store. I am big on customization, it’s a great expression of one’s individuality. I think customizing your own clothes can also be affordable, yet it is a luxury to own a one-of-a-kind item.”

Handmade Holidays 2016: Quatrefoil Ornaments + RAFFLE!

handmade-holidays-banner

IMG_8091

It’s around that time of the year! Stencil1 is honored to once again be part of Handmade Holidays Blog Hop, along with many amazing craft bloggers. For this year’s blog hop, we’ve created ornaments using our new Stencil1 Quatrefoil Ornament Kit. With these ornaments, you can either use them as traditional ornaments and hang them on your tree over your fireplace, or customize them and use them as gift tags!

Keep reading to find out how you can win our Stencil Quatrefoil Ornament Kit and more great prizes from this year’s Handmade Holidays Blog 2016 sponsors!

Let’s get started!

IMG_8074

Things you will need: Stencil1 Quatrefoil Ornament Kit, Stencil1 Letter and Numbers Stencil, Clearsnap’s ColorBox Ink Pads, and a paint brush.

IMG_8079

First, paint the base of the ornament with a metallic color. This is a guaranteed eye-catcher! Here, we’re using the silver metallic color of the ink pad. What’s so great about using Clearsnap’s Color Box Ink Pads is that the ink pad gives off enough paint without ever having to blot excess paint. No more paint bleeding underneath the stencil!

IMG_8081

Once the ornament has dried, grab your letter stencil. Here, we’re using a letter from the custom monogram stencil we created using Stencil’1 Custom Monogram Stencil generator by Amazon! It comes with one small monogram and one larger one all on one 8.5″ x 11″ sheet so you can personalize almost anything. Try it out!

IMG_8087

Using your next color, load up your brush and paint over the stencil. Again, we are using the green color from Clearsnap’s Color Box Ink Pad.

IMG_8088

Once your ornament has completely dried, it’s ready to be hung on your tree or on a gift. Just don’t forget to add a string!

Our Quatrefoil Ornaments is the perfect way to add handmade touch to any of your holiday gifts or décor. What makes it even more special is that these ornaments are made sustainably by a company that rehabilitates and enables its workers, providing them with shelter and jobs.
