To make this piece, I drew an ice cream cone, then I got an exacto(how do you spell that?) knife and I cut out the some of the paper in the ice cream cone. After that, I spray painted it yellow. The difficulties I had making this stencil was first patience, I needed to trace mine off the board but people kept going and I didn't have a chance to go, so I gave up and drew it free hand, so it doesn't look the best. Another difficulties was cutting out the little squares, because they would rip off and now my stencil is messed up. I'm glad I had those difficulties though because, I was able to make my second stencil a lot better. I had to cut out the paper, then tape it to a paper, and then I had to spray paint it.
