Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Stenciling teacher Gauss gives clear, basic instructions that will benefit the beginner and also covers more elaborate techniques, such as trompe l'oeil, stacking, and shading, that will interest more experienced crafters as well. Going beyond the country look of stencils, she includes more imaginative looks such as Renaissance ceilings and walls decorated with cave drawings. Advice on how to correct mistakes is a nice feature since many how-to books just give directions without making allowances for errors. Concluding with advice on becoming a professional and a list of suppliers, Gauss has written a comprehensive book on this decorative paint technique. Although not as comprehensive as Gauss, Robinson and Lowther have produced a well-written, well-illustrated guide that includes patterns to use when stenciling. In larger collections it will be a useful supplement to Gauss.
