Stenciling Techniques: A Complete Guide to Traditional and Contemporary Designs for the Home
Stencil Artisans League Inc.
Book Number: 35743
New York Watson-Guptill Publications 1995 4to softcover 144pp index, colour & b/w illus. very good, book covered in protective clear adhesive plastic. Whether you're thinking about stenciling something simple such as a floral motif around a doorway or have set your sights on turning your bedroom into a medieval castle, this guide will help. Stenciling, we learn, comes from an old French word meaning to sparkle, and the lively projects certainly do. Beyond good coverage of all the necessary basics (equipment, fixing mistakes, cutting your own stencils) and the usual candidates for rampaging stencil artists (walls, fabrics, home decorating accessories), the book offers information on advanced techniques (like airbrushing and trompe l'oeil) and adapting the process to unusual surfaces (ceramic tiles, ceilings, exterior walls). And if you've ever dreamed of becoming a professional stenciler, the no-nonsense advice on setting prices, finding clients, and other tricks of the trade will prove invaluable.
