  • Instructions


    --WARNING--
    We no longer use the darker to lighter technique. We did leave the layer order for the oldest stencil sets, but the new ones will not contain layer orders (Not needed with this new technique which works better)


    Instructions

    Back in the day, the most popular technique used, was the darker to lighter technique. But that would require you to swap/modify/add paint into the airbrush too many times. So if you had a 8 stage stencil, you'd have to modify the paint in the airbrush 8 times. That technique was quite annoying for users doing the art with a single airbrush available.

    No need to do that any longer. There is a new technique, that works 100% better, works with every stencil set, and requires only opaque white for the most part!.


    So what you do is, get a black project.


    1) Ignore layer order (except for Negative/Positive stages(some stencils use it to help with background applications))).


    2)Every stencil kit has alignment pentagons... Use any layer to park pentagons.


    3)Spray Every single layer with opaque white ( very very very very lightly... Barely visible)... Again, extremely lightly. One stage at a time, using alignment pentagons.


    4)After step 3 is done, the whole image is traced on the black project.


    5)Now, from the airbrusher artist's prospective, what is lighter is closer, what is darker is far away... Thats how we create 3D (depth) in airbrushing.
    * Since you sprayed opaque white very very lightly (barely visible, but entirely traced) you can pick a light source you desire. If you want the Kandy Stage to look more dynamic of course.


    *Considering the light source you picked, go back layer by layer again with opaque white, and slowly keep adding white to every stage only as needed, as your desired light source is satisfied.


    *Freehand any opaque white as you desire, if you desire.


    *Finally, now that you are all done with the opaque white, it's time to add the dark colors.


    6) Use dark brown(or black) with patience, and manually dagger stroke the whole project(free hand). If you don't want to free hand the black dagger strokes, you can go back to every stage again, and add black as needed, but this would minimize the depth of the 3d of your project.


    7) After completing step 6 (longest step), you can go back with opaque white (free hand is better)to add highlights if desired (again, to maximize 3d depth)


    8) Use any kandy kolor of your choice to color the project!

    This one here, contains of 5 Stages. This instruction set, shows you the fastest way, from darkest to lightest.

    So, assuming you have a black project, spray dark color , and add 7 to 15% white to each step. There are other techniques, but this is the most basic, and fastest.
