This is a downloadable 3D model for Drawing Stencil Kit #5 (DSK5) and not a physical product. I don't offer this product for sale… yet.

I've been traveling and during my trips I've needed a drawing template for basic shapes that fits in my #EDC (Every Day Carry) pencil kit. But I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.

As part of my artistic process (drawing, woodworking, etc.) I design, create, and 3D-print custom objects, so I designed and 3D printed my own EDC-compatible drawing stencils.

I started showing the stencils on my Instagram profile and people asked me if they could buy them from me. And now you can. : ) MJS.ART Drawing Stencil Kit #4

This is ‘Drawing Stencil Kit #5’. DSK1 comes with three stencils: small ellipses, large ellipses, and circles.

I designed my stencils with an asymmetrical top and bottom:

  • The smooth “top” side of the stencil lays the shape flat against the paper. This is probably the side most people will use. Note that my logo is mirrored when the stencil is used this way
  • The rough “bottom” side of the stencil has an undersized 1/32" tier to lift the edge of the shape off of the paper while drawing. I designed this with my favorite  isograph and rapidograph pens in mind. This is the way.

My innovative tiered design prevents the pen tip from contacting the edge of the stencil and the paper simultaneously which can result in a capillary action that causes ink blotches.

Another innovation comes from 3D printing the stencils with the top side facing down. This results in the bottom side having a bit of texture that provides a tiny bit of grip (when compared to the smooth top side) on the paper.
