FANCY: No.72 Birds, Flowers and Insects (stencil)
Flowers and birds including a handsome heron on a powder blue background.
Suitable for bookbinding, box covering and lining, picture framing, furniture and the general paper crafts.
Our Tip: Primarily made as a covering paper for books and boxes, this also looks fabulous mounted and framed.
Print: Relief Printed and hand stencilled.
Relief printing is where a printing block or plate has ink applied to its non-recessed surface which is brought into contact with paper. When pressure is applied, the non-recessed surface will leave ink on the paper, whereas the recessed areas will not.
Stencilling - A stencil is made by cutting out the required shapes in a heavy oiled cardstock to match the area where added colour is desired. An translucent ink is dabbed over the hole in the stencil leaving the colour making a multiple coloured, highly decorative print.
In this instance, multiple stencils were made to apply the extra colours to the main black print colour.
Print Size: 22 x 17 inches, 560 x 440 mm (approx)
