Buckingham's latest book "Stencilling on a Grand Scale" leads do-it-yourselfers beyond the realm of decorative borders featured in her best-selling Stencilling: A Harrowsmith Guide to a creative canvas whose limits are determined only by space, time and imagination. The key to her strategy is that a large stencilled work - be it a door, wall, screen or floor - can be the seamless sum of its parts. In other words, rather than using an expensive, unwieldy, multi-layered stencil to create a life-sized tree, use three 10 inch stencils of leaf clusters, laying and re-laying them to achieve the desired effect. The only limit to the ultimate size of the finished painting is the room you've set aside for it. Whether you are fashioning a greeting card or a 40-foot mural, Buckingham recommends the same modest techniques. A technical review of stencilling tools and basic stencilling methods prepares readers for the larger-scale projects that are the book's central objective. By the later chapters, stencillers will be comfortable tackling everything from wrought-iron fences and French doors to terra-cotta tiles, mosaic floors, stone columns and garden walls. As always, Buckingham's genius lies in inspiration, and Stencilling on a Grand Scale introduces a do-it-yourself world that has no boundaries.
