The Large Standing Cranes Stencil is part of the new bird stencil range from Henny Donovan. These elegant Red Capped East Asian Cranes are held in high regard throughout China, Japan and across the Himalayas, where they are perceived to bring luck and good fortune and treated as sacred birds. Their large graceful body shapes and postures make extremely elegant design motifs for walls, murals, panels, wardrobes, fabrics and more.

Stencil in the natural tones of white, grey, red and black or in silhouette colours on striking backgrounds for beauty and impact, or on classic gold for truly classic style. See layout and size specifications below.

Graduated Painted Background Technique
A graduated painted background can be achieved by using two similar tones of emulsion paint (latex) and a tinted varnish glaze over the top. This technique will not work with radically different colours - keep the tones similar so mixing is easier. Mix a third of each colour together to create a mid-tone colour and paint the wall in horizontal bands dark to light, brushing the colours lightly over each other at the joining bands to create as softer join as possible. Keep strokes long, smooth and horizontal. Mix a varnish glaze using 2/3rd Acrylic Matt Varnish, 1/3rd Acrylic Scumble Glaze. Add a little water if the glaze is much thicker than the consistency of double cream. Tint the glaze with several drops of Universal Tinter to create a transparent glaze a couple of shades deeper than the middle tone of your painted wall. Brush the glaze over the wall and soften in long smooth strokes using a Hog Hair Softener.
