Jenny Pop(s) Art
The houndstooth is back! Yes. I do seem to have an affinity for this pattern. I haven’t shared any paintings yet so here goes. My favorite medium to work on is melamine, because it’s so cheap (Under $2 for an 1/8″ thick sheet that measures 24″ X 48″). Lately I’ve been into spray paint and stencils. I started with a photo of my magical and beautiful friend and creative protegé, Jenny Johnston (aka Jenny Pops). Her blog is here and is most definitely worth checking out. She is always a source of inspiration for me. I worked with her photo using photoshop and illustrator until I got it down to one color and then combined it with the houndstooth. From there I printed it and cut it out. I prefer using paper over plastic since its easier to work with. After a few coats of spray paint it’s just the same as plastic. Here’s the stencil.
To prepare the melamine canvas I use a coat of spray primer.
From there I layered a few different colors of paint for depth and then layed down the Houndstooth. Here’s a close up of the stenciled portion.
And here is the final product.
As always, if you have any questions on how I did this or need advice making your own, just holler!
