First Sentence
In its most basic form, a stencil is a very simple tool: a template that allows a precise shape to be easily painted on a surface and the exact pattern to be repeated wherever and as often as you wish. Read the first page

This is unstinting sharing of information, of huge value to the beginner or pro.
There was more in this book than I had hoped for. Very complete coverage of
the many ways to accomplish surface decoration, the tools, materials and show-how
to get you there. For sure, a good one. And I have it!

Sandra has done it again - written the ultimate bible of stenciling! Many new and wonderful techniques are shown with clear instructions and wonderful step-by-step full color photographs. The chapters on faux marquetry and imitation textiles was fasinating, showing that anyone can stencil beautiful finishes with the best part being, it doesn't look stencilled! The designs are very up to date, touching on all the hot decorating trends. She also includes classical designs that will be here forever. I have been teaching stenciling for 15 years and I'm going to recommend this book for both my beginners and for seasoned experts. Perfect for all you 'Trading Spaces' followers who want to easily and quickly add a new painted accent to your home. I am going to try a velvet scarf with the amazing devore technique, I think they might just be what everyone on my gift list will be getting this year. I can make lots for a fraction of what it would cost to buy them. Sandra finishes the book with lots of sources for materials and a detailed reading list. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Can you tell I'm trilled with this book? It's the first and only review I have ever written!
