For variations try placing spirals apart at random distances, stencilled in single colours; or try the dots in different bright tones for fun schemes, repeating the colour sequence in each spiral; or rotate spirals and join them at different angles to create swirling patterns. Working from large to small, join the spirals by lining up the dot at the end of the spiral to be stencilled with the same sized dot of the spiral you are joining to, or overlap these dots – either system works well. Use our examples here as a guide to get you started.
Above top – the seven spirals of the Funky Spirals Theme Pack stencilled in an upright position in a random repeat pattern. The spirals are stencilled in a selection of bright colours which is repeated in the same sequence for each spiral. Motif Stencil Paints used here are Indian Purple, French Lavender, Cerise, Very Berry, Verbena, China Blue, Paradise Blue, Seville Orange, Harvest Gold, Emerald Forest and Sea Green (smaller dots in centre) – all on a baby pink background.
Above – the seven spirals of this theme pack stencilled from large to small to create a decreasing coil perspective. Above left – in mulit-coloured palette (colours listed top right); above right – in Ice White Stencil Paint on a sky blue background.
Above – the stencils of this theme pack in a continuous flowing arrangement, stencilled in Evening Primrose Stencil Paint on a light raspberry pink background. Below the same colours applied on a chocolate background.
Above – the seven spirals of the Funky Spirals Theme Pack stencilled horizontally in a random pattern in Ice White Stencil Paint on a chalky blue background.
Above – the seven spirals of this theme pack in a large trailing pattern achieved by starting with the large spiral and then placing the last outer dot of a smaller stencil next to the same sized dot in the original print and stencilling each successive smaller spiral in this way. Change angles and direction of the pattern by rotating the stencil and adding new ‘branches’ of the design – see our different graphic examples on this page for different layout possibilitiles. Above – continuous spirals in Summer Skies Stencil Paint on a white-grey background. Below – in a multi-coloured palette (colours same as listed top of this page) on a mint green background.
This three sheet stencil theme pack comprises seven different sized dotty funky spiral stencils on 125 micron mylar.
