The Big Shield Special Edition by Gerald Mendez
These freehand airbrush templates are designed by Gerald Mendez and laser cut from Artool.
“I created The Big Shield in 1995 to complete the first Artool Freehand Airbrush Template collection: The Essential Seven. In 2011Gerald Mendez shared with me a much smaller version of this same popular template which one of his students from Bogota, Colombia created by hand – it was perfect! Gerald and I were so amazed at how useful this mini size performed that we knew it was necessary to release The BIG SHIELD Special Edition set. With the additional sizes, this timeless airbrush stencil is an essential tool for multiple applications”. - Gabe McCubbin.
This set includes: The Mini Big Shield, The Little Big Shield, The Big Shield and Mini Texture FX Cosmic templates.
“The BIG SHIELD Special Edition set form Artool is a great addition to your template collection! You will find the size and shape of the curve you need as The BIG SHIELD Special Edition set has it all! The Mini BIG SHIELD (measuring 4.5" x 2" – 5mil Mylar) is amazing for any tiny curbed shapes and for creating fine details. The Little BIG SHIELD (measuring 9.5" x 4" – 7mil Mylar) is perfect for medium-size projects and the original BIG SHIELD (measuring 14.5" x 5.5" – 10mil Mylar) is the king of all templates!” - Gerald Mendez.
