Classic colourways for this type of design include pinks, reds, greens and yellows on duck egg blue or aqua backgrounds – see bottom right for stencilling multi-coloured palettes for this design. Or try creating the sumptuous and always striking look of Metallic Stencil Paints on black or red backgrounds.

Stencilling multi-coloured palettes – Chinoiserie Stencils:
Start by stencilling the ground, rocks and branches and twigs. Then stencil the leaves, followed by the flowers. Finally add the chosen colours for the birds and butterflies. If any colour is over-stencilled by another colour re-stencil the particular shapes with a small section of Stencil Sponge or small Deluxe Stencil Brush – both applicators are ideal for this kind of stencilling.
This is a one layer stencil that comes in two sections with easy to use alignment dots for registration that align vertically to create one large panel.
The height of the complete panel is up to approximately 167cm (66″) by approximately 53cm (21″) wide.
The top section, as shown top left, is up to approximately 82cm (32″) high.
The bottom section, as shown bottom left, is up to approximately 85cm (33.5″) high.
