Yeah, I'm wanting to teach painting (I've got one student already. I am a Bob Ross Instructor anyway but, that technique isn't proper art teaching) and, create the same subject without having to grid up. It's a lot easier if I already have stencils made.
Yeah, I agree that an original is a unique concept that grows in worth. A student gets the freedom to produce them after they've gained skills through tried and tested projects like the 'Tulip', 'Sunset', 'Rose' and 'Portrait' standards.
I fully intend to create some originals. I hope they'll prove valuable too!  :painting: ;)

Ooooh, OK. Got it now. I really didn't know what you were up to. Sounds like a good plan, though.  O0

Yeah, that's the plan  :) But, I may just end up becoming an affiliate agent for Nolan & Dennis promoting sales of Paint Basket. Then, just do some originals of my own and sell 'em...for bug bucks!  ;)

Here's a update on the acetate use to make stencils. (I'll post on the 'Rose' project too)
I've used the projector to beam a printed version of the Rose (a 4x6" printable acetate) onto the canvas covered by a large sheet of normal acetate. (slightly opaque and quite thick). I drew round the outline with red indelible ink and marked some of the inner lines with red.
I've cut the Rose (positive) out this morning and saved the outer/background (negative) onto another sheet of acetate for storage.
Here are a few pictures of the progress. The last one is the Rose stuck to the 16x24" canvas (placed on my music stand! I bought 2 quick release clamps yesterday from B&Q to hold the canvas on while I used the projector):
