Found this cute little image at Nani Nani Kids Coloring Pages.
I tried to make this really close to the original look of the image, but I had some issues with small lines. I'm not that good with very detailed stencil making yet. I'll be sure to airbrush this again.
Also, I wanted to airbrush on something black. My daughter gave me some black construction paper since she didn't need it anymore. I don't usually use construction paper, but I'm happy I did this time. Good practice for black backgrounds and airbrushing.
I think I got better results this time because instead of using 30 PSI with my airbrush compressor, I turned it down to 20 PSI so I could control the paint a little better. I actually painted the lips without anything to cover up the rest of the design and didn't get much overspray! yay! Click the images for a larger view.
I also had to take the hearts off because I lost them when I took the stencil off the Pazzles mat (I vectorized the image in Pazzles Pro 2014 and cut it on the Pazzles Inspiration die-cut machine) I took the interior white of the Afro off too. I may try to get a bit closer to the original next time.
For the stencil, I used the clear contact paper I found at Wal-mart a while ago. When I first tried to use it on white fabric, it didn't work out so well. I'll have to try that again.
So happy I found these images. They are too cute.
