It’s all about the circles

April 13, 2009

It’s time for the circles.  I’ve had a love/hate relationship with them over the years.  No matter how hard I try, I can’t get the masking tape to form a circle. Doing them free hand just doesn’t leave the nice, crisp edge that I like.

I’ve tried many different ways to get them right.  The latest attempt was using a stencil film to cut out the circle, then with some Krylon Easy-Tack set it on the wood and stained away.  Circle fail!  Or, maybe it’s stencil fail.  As, you can see.

I know, I didn’t manage to cut the stencil film very well, but I still don’t think that would have helped the process.  Doese anyone have any ideas?  I’m going to try one more idea, but I don’t really think it will work.  So, does anyone out there have any inspiration to share? Please, let me know.
