Stencilling Made Easy
Susan Penny, Martin Penny
David & Charles, 1998 - Crafts & Hobbies - 64 pages
Board to draw on, a picture to trace, a knife for cutting, and a brush to paint: no craft beats stencilling for simple, versatile decorating. Used on anything from jewelry boxes to walls, it's a wonderful way to carry a motif throughout a home -- even if you're not a skilled artist. Here's the ultimate introductions to the form, with instructions on making and cutting your own stencils from carbon paper, acetate, or cookie cutters, and repairing damaged ones. Choose the right paint and master loading the brush, adding highlights, and sponging techniques. Stencil on tiles, wood, metal, paper, and fabric by following the advice on preparing materials, fixing the paint, sealing surfaces, and covering up those inevitable mistakes. The array of beautiful projects, complete with patterns, includes: a Barge Roses Garden Set, jeweled cards and wrapping paper; Farmyard Tiles covered with friendly animals; a cat T-shirt and sneakers; and other charming items.
