Stencilling allows you to create
your own unique room but without too much effort. Once the initial cutting is complete, it's plain sailing, yet the results can be magnificent.

You can use Manila paper or an acetate-stencilling sheet. Both are available from the artists' suppliers. Alternatively you can buy stencils ready-made.

Small 50ml colour testers from Dulux are ideal for this decoration.

When completed peel back the stencil and repeat the process. Always keep the back of the stencil clean.
