CHOOSING INDIVIDUAL STENCILS IN THE SET
If you are only going to choose a single stencil it is recommended that you start with the "Detail Stencil". This is the main pattern. The other two are for adding shading effects to enhance the "detail stencil". The "Shade" and "HiLite" stencils are available individually so that those who start with the "detail stencil" have the option to upgrade in the future.
CHOOSING THE FULL SET
The "Full Set" contains three stencils. The names of each stencil are as follows:
The stencils in the Crawfish set can be mixed and matched in many ways to create a myriad of design options.
HOW TO CREATE A SHADED LOOK WITH THE FULL SET
The "HiLite Stencil" represents the portions of the shell segments that are raised higher and thus exposed to more light. It is to be used with the light colors in your scheme, colors that are slightly lighter than your base color. This replicates how light would fall on the shell segments as if they were 3-dimensional and curved.
The "Shade stencil" is used to create a shadow for each shell segment giving them a raised 3d look. It is to be used with colors that are slightly darker than your base color.
The "detail stencil" is the main pattern. It is to be used with the darkest color in your scheme to accentuate the creases and crevices that receive the least amount of light. This stencil is composed of fine lines which adds the final touch to your bait giving it high definition and resolution.
