Magnets hold the different stencils in place

My airbrush work is made much easier by your tiny yet very strong magnets: My templates/stencils are held in the right spot leading to much better results.
Today, I want to airbrush the lady in the picture with the help of my new magnets. First, I use rod magnets 14 x 5 mm to attach the template to my workstation made of galvanised sheet steel.
Here you can see my workstation.
The template was copied with the help of masking film and transferred to the airbrush paper. Next, the most important features such as the hair, top and face etc. were cut out with the scalpel. Here, some details, such as hair, the top and the stars, have already been airbrushed in black. Less paint was used on the light areas.
Depending on the hue, each detail has to be removed before airbrushing and needs to be replaced afterwards, which requires a lot of patience and accuracy. Here you can see that I also hold the template in place with small W-05-N cube magnets.
