Synopses & Reviews
Using stencils, even aspiring crafters with no artistic ability can transform dull surfaces into works of art, or create family heirlooms from scratch. It's simple, and this user-friendly guide takes beginners every step of the way. Start by learning how to choose and position stencils and about the different types of paints and applicators. Each technique is taught through an easy question-and-answer format, with a project to illustrate the concept. Twenty-five charming projects showcase particular aspects of the craft, including stencilling on fabric (an Autumn Leaf Table Runner) or glass (a Rose Box); adding shading to a design (Fruit Drawers); or stencilling a wall border with a magnolia pattern.
