The Carp Stencil

The Carp Stencil is currently out of stock

This lively pattern was originally published by Candace Wheeler in the early 1900's as a design for a bathroom stencil. It is a two piece stencil, which allows for mixing shades and colors in the paints. The print shown here has two greens in the surround and the shell, and two blues used on the fish itself, with an effort made to maintain variety of tones from one application to the next. This stencil has also been effectively painted using just one color with different shading to highlight the figures. To achieve an artistic result, we suggest experimenting first with colors on posterboard before starting to work on the walls.
