Stencil FUNdamentals show you fun ways to get started with stencils.  Today, I am playing with Wood Icing and Jane LaFazio's Pods stencil. This is a wonderfully intricate stencil and it works fabulously with Wood Icing!

What's Wood Icing

Here's how Mary Beth describes it...
"The best texture product I have ever used.  I use it on paper, canvas, clayboard and wood substrates.  It is easy to apply with a palette knife.  You can paint it, stain it, glaze it, carve it.  You can even paint into it while it's still wet.  You can do encaustic on top of it after it has dried.  This one texture product fulfills a multitude of needs."

Here's my play session with wood icing.
