All about Stencils

As a rule, stencils are made by high-precision laser machines or industrial plotters. Special stencils are also produced by the method of chemical etching, but this method is laborious, expensive, and complicated, it is used only in the manufacture of electronic circuits.

Humanity has been using the stencil since the earliest times. Due to its versatility and low cost of results of use, the stencil has found application for printing newspapers, magazines, and books. In addition, stencils have been widely used in advertising as a way to produce repetitive images or illustrations.

Stencil technique in the visual arts is also called "pochoir". This technique originated in the Middle Ages and is very laborious to perform. The name comes from the French word "poche", which translates as "bag, bowl, stencil". When working in this technique, a separate form is used - a stencil, through which paint is applied using a special brush. This method of obtaining an image in its technique resembles silk-screen printing.

How to work with a stencil properly?

In order to obtain a pattern on a wall or other flat surface using a stencil, it is applied as tightly as possible to the base, securely fixed so that the stencil does not move during operation. Further, paint or paste is applied through a stencil using an aerosol can or using a sponge, brush or roller. The coloring matter penetrates through the contours of the image cut in the stencil onto the surface to be painted.

Universal stencils are used not only to decorate walls, but also in scrapbooking and decoupage techniques, to decorate postcards, albums, interior items, and even furniture. In addition, through a stencil, you can apply not only paint, but also glue to the surface, and sprinkle the resulting print with glitter or embossing powder, which is then baked using an embossing dryer.

The most important advantage of reusable plastic stencils is their versatility when creating the same images and inscriptions. Stencils for painting and decorating walls are widely used by professional painters, so the possibility of their repeated use significantly reduces the cost and speeds up the process. The main thing is not to forget to thoroughly clean the stencil from the remnants of paint or paste after work.
