Bread Stencilling with cocoa powder like Hitz

Visiting the arts & crafts store with my wife and daughter I picked up a stencil and on the second try got a design that I was quite happy with.:


The Ciril Hitz video that gave me the idea and illustrates the method is here: I spritzed the dough with water before stencilling and I think that helped, but I still found myself hold the stencil in place with one hand.

The stencil you picked out made a pretty loaf of bread :^)
I've seen that video and found it quite helpful.

Thanks! I hadn't seen that post and I'm intrigued by the idea of raising dough with fermented apples. I really need to check out Ortiz, seems like there's a lot of interesting stuff in his book.
