The Big Shield Special Edition
by Gabe Mc Cubbin
These freehand airbrush templates are designed
by Gabe McCubbin and laser cut
“I created The Big Shield in 1995 to
complete the first Artool Freehand Airbrush
Template collection: The Essential Seven. In 2011
Gerald 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
