This listing is for 4 color segments a total of four yards or 3.7 meters of vintage punchinella (i.e. sequin waste). It is 3 1/4" wide. You will receive one yard or .914 meters of each Fusha, gold, blue, and black.
Punchinella is a wonderful addition to any mixed media / collage artists' art supply collection, as you can create artistic backgrounds and texture on a variety of mixed media surfaces. This large whole patern works better for paint than smaller stencil patterns. One piece can last you for a long time! You can also add punchinella directly into your mixed media creations, altered books, mail art, and more! The large 1/4" holes work best for stenciling, and make a cleaner simpler background. The smaller stars and other small shapes are hard to get the paint through to make a good print.
Because this punchinella is wide, it makes good background for ATCs, chunky books, or other smaller pieces of art--but also works equally well on a larger canvas. This Red yellow blue combination is my favorite.
The photos for this listing show the punchinella colors you'll be receiving along with photos of one completed project that used punchinella designs.
To use punchinella as a stencil: 1) Lay the punchinella down on the surface on which you want to add texture 2) Hold it down with your fingers so that the punchinella lays flat against the paper/canvas/page 3) Take a dry brush and acrylic paint and gently brush the paintbrush across the punchinella 4) Lift the punchinella up, and you'll have a wonderful stencil of circles. You can even layer punchinella circles in repeated patterns for more interesting design.
A piece of punchinella when used as a stencil can be cleaned again and again for repeated use :).
Other punchinella use ideas: 1) Punchinella works great in beeswax collage (lay it down, put beeswax over the top, and when the beeswax is still soft, lift up and you'll have wonderful circles!) 2) Punchinella works great with dimensional plaster or molding paste. Lay it down on your surface, put a thin layer of plaster on, and then lift off! 3) Punchinella also works as a stamp--take a brayer and acrylic paint, paint directly onto the punchinella, lay the paint side down on a piece of paper, roll it down with the brayer, and lift off! 3) Punchinella also works with : various mexied media, a texture for clay with rolled brayer impression, watercolors, alcohol inks, wrapping decor, and craft decoration. I even seen small pieces used for jewelry making.
Anyway there are many uses for the creative artist.
