Order Stencilling on a Grand Scale: Using Simple Stencils to Create Visual Magic

 

Stencilling on a Grand Scale : Using Simple Stencils to Create Visual Magic by Sandra Buckingham. Hardcover, 156 pages. Buckingham's latest book, "Stencilling on a Grand Scale", takes us beyond the realm of decorative borders to a creative canvas whose limits are determined by space, time and imagination. The key to her strategy is that a large stencilled work can be the seamless sum of its parts. Whether you are fashioning a greeting card or a 40-foot mural, Buckingham recommends the same modest techniques. A technical review of stencilling tools and basic stencilling methods prepares readers for the larger-scale projects that are the central objective of the book. By the later chapters, stencillers will be comfortable tackling everything from wrought-iron fences and French doors to terra-cotta tiles, mosaic floors, stone columns and garden walls. As always, Buckingham's genius lies in inspiration, and "Stencilling on a Grand Scale" introduces a do-it-yourself world that has no boundaries.
