Book Review

My local rep handed me Home Stencilling (to be published February 2006) to read and review. This is a great book for your first attempt at stencilling. Not only is there all the instruction you will need to complete the projects in the book as well as creating others, you really get a sense of how beautiful the project can be from the photos of the final product.

There are four must read sections at the beginning of Home Stencilling: introducing stencilling, planning your design, paint effects and different surfaces. If you have never done any stencilling the information in this book will teach you the necessary techniques to be successful at it. There are also photos of the techniques required to successfully transfer the stencil to the surface you are painting as well as clear step-by-step instructions for each project.

I really like that not only are the stencils provided to make the projects in Home Stencilling, there are pattern variations for each project using different portions from the stencil pages at the back of the book. There are tips included on the same page as the variations about where the stencils could be used, i.e. other rooms or surfaces as well as the type of paint required for different surfaces.

Favorites:

  • Sunshine daisies tablecloth and placemats
  • Patchwork tablecloth
  • Herbs et ribbon platter
  • Tuscan olives table
  • Chinese pomegranates bathtub

Overall Rating:

5/5
