Template and Frisket Used in Painting "Christmas Things"
This is a photo of the frisket film and a commercially made template used in painting "Christmas Things."
You will notice that I cut the frisket around the objects (ornaments & crayons) and also cut the frisket to follow the shadows. I sometimes paint the shadows using free-hand airbrush but in this case I used the frisket. This was done because the edges of the shadows were hard and thus required the frisket. The template was used to create the round reflections of ornaments on the surface of the opposite ornament.
