I began to create my costume today and started with the mechanical stencil first. After drawing out the stencil pattern on to card I used a scalpel to cut it out. Once I had completed the stencil I practiced using on the model who will be wearing my costume. With a paint brush I went around the stencil using black and white face paint. Although the design was very simplistic I am extremely pleased with how effective the stencil was and it will therefore save me time when I go to film my final piece as well as giving me the ability to achieve continuity in my film in case I have to re-shoot certain scenes.
