Faber-Castell Connector Paints with the Pochoir Color Process
Faber-Castell® Connector Paints offer a unique paint and paint delivery of detachable color tablets that can be connected into various creative and purposefulcolor combinations. Bright, rich colors dry to a velvety smooth, flat finish. They are perfect for all water-based painting techniques, including the Pochoir French,pronounced POE-schwar) Color Process. The Pochoir Process is intended to add color to small areas of relief prints through a stencil method. The laydown of a flat colored area in a printmaking process is accomplished before the final print.
- The arts are inherently experimental and actively engage learners in the process of creating, interpreting and responding to art materials and processes fromsimple to complex.
- The organizational structure of art allows the learner to move from creating a black and white block print to adding color through an innovative process called “Pochoir”, converting a material, “Connector Paints” into a medium.

THINGS YOU'LL NEED
Create a block printing plate in wood, linoleum, or foam. Roll with ink and print a proof. Examine the print at the proof state for open areas that would be enhanced by adding color.
Using the proof state as a guide, cut out of the stencil paper those areas that would be in color. Note: If you are using multiple colors, all these areas can be cut out of the same stencil sheet.
Small triangular registration marks can be cut into the corners of the stencil to ensure correct positioning onto the final print paper.
Mark registration corners (lightly with pencil) onto the final paper for the correct positioning of the stencil and final.
Add colors, Faber-Castell® Connector Paints, to the final print paper through the open areas of the stencil, using the stencil brush with VERY little paint, in a DABBING, not painting, motion.
Position the inked block exactly over the registration marks. Turn over the paper and block to rub, pressing on the back of the final paper with a baren, spoon, or rubbing stick.
Lift the final print and curate with “Title, edition number, and name-date.”
