Stencil art is a form of art that makes use of stencils made out of paper, cardboard, or other media to create an image or text that is easily reproducible. The desired design is cut out of the selected medium and then the image is transferred to a surface through the use of spray paint or roll-on paint. Transfer paper is used in textiles and arts & crafts projects. Often, an ink-jet or other printer is used to print an image on the paper. Then a transfer gel medium is used to transfer the image onto clothing, canvas, or other surface. Transfer paper is used in creating iron-ons.
