Stenciling: Taking Out The Artist In You

| Articles | January 29, 2011

If you think you’re no good in making artworks and simply settle on drawing stick figures, well think again. There’s always that artist in you which is waiting to be unleashed. All it needs is a little encouragement, time, effort, practice, patience, and of course knowledge about the craft to let your imagination flow and be turned into a beautiful work of art.

You don’t have to be an artist to be called one. With the right knowledge, resources, and a little skill, you’re off to creating that beautiful design that you will sure be proud of. Now, why don’t you start with stenciling, the process of making an image using color application on a stencil, leaving a reproduction of that image on the surface underneath?

If you are thinking about redecorating your home, then stenciling is the one for you. Whether you want to put some new designs on your walls, furniture, glass materials, and fabric, stencil designs will provide that beautiful results that you desire. Okay, so you’re not an artist, right? No worries. All you need is a little research on stenciling. First, acquaint yourself of what a stencil is.

Then, explore the other materials that you need to use such as the paint brush, either large or small, and paint, which could be acrylic or fabric, depending on the material where you want the image of the stencil to be. Now, choose the stencil design that you want. Are you thinking about redecorating your kids’ room’s walls? Why not stencil their names on the wall, on top of their bed? Or how about accentuating your kitchen? You can always pick up kitchen utensil designs, foods, or just a simple line, “Dinner is ready” and stencil them on your kitchen wall. With stenciling, there is really no limit. Whatever your imagination reaches, you can go as far beyond that.

But hey, stenciling can be done not only at home but also in the office. You can even use it for your business. In the office, if you have a desk of your own, you can always use some stencil designs to make it look more personalized. That way, even from afar, your colleagues will know that it’s your desk, and not anybody else’s. For your business, instead of hiring someone and pay him for doing some stenciling job for you, why not do it yourself?

You do not only get to control what design you want but you also get to enjoy savings from not hiring someone to do it. But the more rewarding part is that, you get to realize that there’s that creative side in you that just waits to be explored. And you did it, through stenciling!

Stenciling can really do a lot for you, whether at home or at work. But apart from providing elegance in your workstation or your home, it can actually do more than that and that is to take out the artist in you. Never doubt your creative skills because only you can take advantage of that. Who knows, you might even discover more about your creative side if you learn more about stenciling.

To further educate yourself about this craft, you can always search online for tutorials or you can go and ask a friend, who is into stenciling, for more information.
