I decided to try using paste with a stencil. I chose Golden Molding Paste . Using a palette knife I carefully spread it on, making sure all the small crevices in the stencil were filled. Then I carefully pulled back the stencil and there was this cool raised image of roses all over the paper. I was really excited! I let it dry and then got out my watercolors and painted the roses and background in. I really like the three dimensional effect the molding paste created.
