Screw Head Set

Step 1

In order to create a screw head you will need the Screw Head stencil set and pro-color paint black and white.

Step 2

First, prepare your background. In this case, it is a metal looking structure. Pick a screw head from the stencil and position the circular shape in the desired location. Mix a dark shade of grey from black and white and spray evenly all over the circle.

Step 3

Here you can see the area in a dry state. The opacity of the white will make sure that none of the metal looking background will be shining through.

Step 4

Clean your airbrush and then fill it with pro-color white. Spray a contour edge on one half of the circle.

Step 5

For the next stencil element, position the screw's slot on top of the present spraying results. Spray the whole slot with black.

Step 6

Here you can see the intermediate results. The screw is almost done.

Step 7

In order to make it appear more realistic, add a shadow edge. For this, use the stencil foil's half circle and spray the area with black as well.

Step 8

For the last step, add a highlight with opaque white, and scrape off a really slim contour edge using a scalpel. Try the different screw heads and see just how easily and quickly you can create this effect
