Description

In the Arts & Crafts tradition, decorative stencilling -- on walls, pillows, draperies, or furniture -- is made accessible and fresh with these classic stencil patterns from the Arts & Crafts period. Using time-tested techniques, decorative stencil painting can be applied to every room in the house. With plant and flower patterns for the kitchen, formal ornaments for the living room, animals and bugs for the family room, children and ducks for the nursery, and sea life for the bathroom, they can also be mixed and matched to suit a particular taste and decor. This treasure trove of Arts & Crafts stencil patterns is based on articles originally published in The Journal of Decorative Art. When W. G. Sutherland first published this book back in 1910, it was intended for the professional decorator. But today's do-it-yourselfer has skills that far surpass the imagination of Mr. Sutherland in the early twentieth century. Turn-of-the-century methods are described thoroughly and give an excellent background in the art of stencilling for ornamental detail. In addition to discussing supplies and preparations, Sutherland shares trade secrets for managing corners, applying continuous borders and friezes, and working up ceiling treatments and "all over" patterns -- all the while working efficiently and quickly. Arts & Crafts Stencilling is the perfect companion for a bungalow update or for a contemporary Arts & Crafts-style home. W. G. Sutherland was a British sign maker and decorative artist of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. He was a frequent contributor to The Journal of Decorative Art, published in Great Britain.show more

Using time-tested techniques and your favorite colors, you can apply decorative stencil painting to every room of the house. There are plant and flower patterns for the kitchen, formal ornaments for the living room, animals and bugs for the family room, little children and ducks for the nursery, and sea life for the bathroom. Or mix them up any way you want to suit your taste and decor. This treasure trove of Arts & Crafts stencil patterns is based on articles originally published in The Journal of Decorative Art. When W. G. Sutherland first published this book in 1910, it was intended for the professional decorator. But today's do-it-yourselfer has skills way beyond the imagination of Mr. Sutherland in the early twentieth century. Even so, the turn-of-the-century methods described here are thorough and give an excellent background in the art of stencilling for ornamental detail. In addition to discussing the supplies and preparations necessary to get started, Sutherland shares trade secrets for managing the corners, applying continuous borders and friezes, and working up ceiling treatments and "allover" patterns -- all the while working efficiently and quickly. This is the perfect companion for a bungalow update or for a contemporary Arts & Crafts-style home.show more
