Overview

Egyptian motifs that turn a bathroom into an ancient dream. Pictures of clowns, jack-in-the-boxes, and dinosaurs to cheer a child's room. Mystic designs like a zodiac wheel for a sense of peace and harmony. Stencils bring atmosphere to every area in the home, wonderfully transforming walls, picture frames, vases, fabrics, and furniture. And with more than 200 inspiring patterns from the best-selling author of several stenciling books, there's something to suit every lifestyle and get creative juices flowing. Themes are drawn from classic period pieces, like heraldic beasts and shields; nature's flowers, fruits, and animals; the grace of the human form (including art nouveau dancers); boldly geometric abstractions; and locations around the world. With instructions on materials, techniques, and creating your own designs, here's the source for stenciling knowledge and inspiration. 144 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 11.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Stenciled decoration has had a revival in recent years, and stenciling supplies are now available in many craft shops. Stencilling for the First Time emphasizes practical techniques using purchased stencils and a variety of applicators and paints. Techniques are described through a series of easy projects for decorating furniture and household items. The Creative Stencil Source Book has templates for cutting one's own stencils and includes photos and suggestions as to how they may be used. The motifs include plants, animals, and historical subjects. There is a short chapter on materials and techniques. Both books would be useful in public libraries, Carter's as the first choice for collections lacking other stenciling titles and Meehan's as a good complement to any introductory title.
