The Large Starry Repeat Stencil is a fantastic star stencil. Create an amazing stella wall of starry clusters with the Large Starry Repeat Stencil. A single sheet repeat stencil of densely clustered stars, epitomizing starry skies seen on really clear nights. This stencil can be repeated over a large area to create a stencil starscape on walls, or fabric for curtains. The stencil comes with easy to use repeat registration dots. The density of the stars can be altered by simply placing a piece of paper over different stars, to block out different stars whilst stencilling - creating the realistic effect of a night sky. See size and layout specifications below.

Stars are popular shapes for decorating both walls and ceilings in bedrooms, studies and in children's rooms. They are also fantastic for seasonal or winter decorating. Stencil in Ice White or Evening Primrose Stencil Paint on dark backgrounds with graduating colours in black, blue, indigo or turquoise, with Pearl, Silver Lights or Antique Gold Metallic Stencil Paints for extra reflective lustre, or use our Glitter Paints for children's rooms. Or try bright fun colour schemes on pastel coloured backgrounds such as pink or aqua.

Above - four repeats of the Large Starry Repeat in a multi-coloured palette. A mixture of any bright and pastel tones will work well for this, with a preponderance of one colour throughout to give the feeling of continuity. Our example above on a pale blue background shows each repeat stencilled first in Pineapple Stencil Paint and with different stars over-stencilled in Kingfisher, Cyan, Cerise, Very Berry, Agapanthus, French Lavender, Indian Purple, Mandarin, Oasis, Verbena and English Rose Stencil Paints. For continuity repeat the same colours for each successive stencil repeat.

 

Graduated Painted Background Technique
Very effective with starry stencils 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.
