Arts & Crafts Stencils

1890 - 1920

The following stencils are from the Arts & Crafts era. You will observe that some of the stencils are "reverse stencils". The reverse stencil means that you are stenciling around the image you wish to end up with. Therefore the color of the image you want will be the color of the wall. This is why many times a band of color is painted on the wall before the stencil is applied. For instance, using Ras042 on page 21 (middle page in the top row below) as an example, a band of dark brown, the width of the mylar of the stencil, was painted first. Orange was used as the stencil color. The shells appear to be the dark brown with orange detail over the top, with dark bands of brown top and bottom.
