Mary Beth Shaw is Stencil Girl. She is a full time mixed media painter and internationally known workshop instructor. Her mixed media process utilizes pastel, ink, marker and acrylics layered with various collage and texture materials. Having hand-cut her own stencils for years, Mary Beth dipped her toe into the stencil design business in 2010. Expanding StencilGirl to team up with other artists is the fulfillment of her dream to provide the highest quality artist designed stencils for the mixed media world.
Stencil Girl stencils are designed by artists who know and love stencils and use them regularly.
7 mil mylar, a plastic film that is heat resistant. The stencils are thick enough to be strong and long lasting, yet they are thin enough to provide a seamless look in your art. StencilGirl demands this 'cause she is a picky little girl who doesn't like a bulky stencil. These stencils are also laser cut, so can be very detailed.
Use the stencils with paint or texture mediums. They will work with encaustic products and you can clean them on your hot palette if you are quick about it, Stencil Girl does it all the time when her palette is cooling. You can use them for rubbings or as a template for drawing, incising or stitching.

Stencil Girl personally tests every single stencil for the strength of its design.
