About Our Products:
All stencils are hand drawn, original art by Victoria Larsen. Once the design is completed, it is then digitized in computer software so that it can be meticulously cut by our laser equipment. All designs are copyright Victoria Larsen 1991 – present day.
We do not stock product. Each order is produced as we receive it and your order typically ships within 2 business days.
All stencils come with easy to understand instructions and a color sheet of the design.
Plaster Stencils are laser cut out of 14 mil, heavy duty mylar which holds up extremely well to repeated use and continuous troweling or scraping. Of all the companies that produce plaster stencils, ours are by far, the highest quality and most durable. The pros swear by them for raised designs.
Painting stencils are laser cut out of 5 mil and 10 mil mylar depending on the design and intended use. For instance, Stencils designed specifically for furniture or counter top use are always cut out of 5 mil mylar because the flexibility allows you to curve the stencil around bull nose edges, over furniture legs or bent around corners.
Stencils designed for repeated wall use, such as wallpaper stencils, are cut out of 10 mil mylar for strength and durability.
Plaster molds are vacuum formed with food safe, PETG plastic. Please note that these molds are not intended for use with products that heat up such as bondo or 2 part resin products. We recommend plaster of paris, cement and clay products.
