Arabian Night Stencils

We have just received the latest design in the Artistcellar range of Stencils and I love them. 

I have always admired the Islamic designs - especially the stars and have had this photo of a tile design from the V&A in London in my 'definitely have to use this' file

 I had a play around yesterday with just a few Opulence paints on the four designs

But I thought they looked a bit bland so I pulled out some primaries in the Sun Dyes and gave them a bit of additional colour

 I think they look much better now. I love the way the Opulence acts a resist and still comes through after a wash of water based paints is applied
All the stencils and paints are available on our website.
