I don't promote the use of stencils in this video, my style is a freehand form that will help build a foundation for an overall understanding of what it actually takes to recreate the illusion of deep layers, ultimately putting the artist in charge. The style in which I teach, promotes an aggressive, burning of the surface and contouring flame licks, which is what I visualize for each individual project. I compare an individuals ability to reproduce this effect to simple handwriting. Everyone has there own style and signature. The level of practice and overcoming mistakes will translate into profiency.
Be the Artist, Be in control.
