I had some Sugru left over from my test pack, and I wanted to make some stag earrings. By the time I finished with my stencil though, it would have looked like I was wearing a branch on my face… and while I’m not adverse to big earrings, I’m not into animal cruelty.
So the project became an ‘embellishment’. I chose to attach it to a notebook, but you could use it in scrapbooking, attach it to a photo frame, or turn it into a magnet.
* This project was done almost entirely in front of the TV.
I pinned a board of stags for inspiration, then chose one that I would model my stencil on.
I used two different paint colours to outline the stencil by dabbing my fingers on it. It would have gone a lot smoother if I’d used card to make the original stencil so you might want to think about doing that. Flip the stencil and outline the opposite half.
Roll the Sugru out flat on a cutting board; I used a carving tool with a level surface. Put the stencil onto the Sugru and use the scalpel to cut around it, scraping away the bits that you don’t need.
