The Artool Texture FX2 Freehand Airbrush Templates, designed by Gerald Mendez are a compilation of natural and organic effects and are designed to create unlimited textural possibilities. This set of 3 templates includes: Liquid Trail, Organic Net and Square Burst.
Laser cut by Artool, are produced using a special polymer-coated material and are solvent resistant. With proper care and without folding, Texture FX Templates will withstand years of repeated use. Please note: Although these stencils are polymer-coated, they are not made from Mylar material and therefore will not last as long as stencils that are made from Mylar. Spray light layers of atomised paint through the stencil for best longevity and avoid drenching it. If you are spraying solvent based paints through them then you could use a top coat or lacquer on the surface to protect the stencil.
Because of an advance proprietary technology from Artool, natural and organic illustration effects can now be achieved like never before with the Texture FX Freehand Airbrush Templates by Gerald Mendez. You can easily use these organic textures to create hyper-living qualities with your artwork.
Application Techniques and Tips:
- You can achieve incredibly soft textures by slightly lifting the templates from the working surface.
- Move the template while airbrushing for added dimensional possibilities.
- Overlap colours and shapes for greater textural depth.
- Achieve different effects with the wide variety of size and shape holes.
Templates come in an 5" x 7" format (approximately). Simply cut tabs to release each shape.
Texture FX2 is also available in a larger size.
Gerald Mendez has been airbrushing since 1986. After his graphic design education in Mexico City, he undertook the challenge to master as many techniques as possible to improve the quality of his artwork – including airbrush and digital illustration, along with airbrush automotive techniques. His drive to create what he terms as “unreal concepts” has motivated him to develop his own personal and unique style. Gerald’s airbrush studio is located in Chino, California and he is currently working as a digital illustrator for Disney Studios while staying busy with custom automotive painting projects.
