I wanted to write a book that would become every stenciler's best friend. The result is The Complete Stenciling Handbook. Over the many years that I have been working with this craft -- writing, teaching, experimenting and designing -- I've been asked just about every imaginable stencil-related question. The answers to all of them are in this book. No other stencil book contains as much information as this one on so many aspects of stencilling, from mediums, to surfaces to techniques. At the same time, it caters to every level of practitioner -- from the complete beginner looking for basic instructions to the accomplished stenciler wanting advanced techniques. It does not assume any previous knowledge that is not covered somewhere between the covers. I have tried to be clear and straightforward, so that whether you're looking for a nugget of information on using gold leaf or a comprehensive approach to trompe l'oeil drapery, you'll have no trouble understanding the explanations. This book gives you everything you need to just have fun with stencilling or to make the transition from hobbyist to professional.Buckingham, Sandra is the author of 'Complete Stenciling Handbook' with ISBN 9781552096383 and ISBN 1552096386.
