Create a little oriental chic with The Little Orchid Stencil which depicts a single graceful Phalaenopsis Moth Orchid Flower. Henny's Orchid 'portraits' inspired by profusely flowering indoor orchids make fantastically beautiful stencils and will add a touch of elegance to any room. Use as delicate flower motifs on linens, furniture, accessories and accents on walls. Beautiful in the whole range of natural orchid colours or as silhouette designs on contrasting background colours. Use this stencil as a single motif or repeated in random groupings, rotating the flower to create different angled combinations - see our examples here.

The Single Orchid Stencil comprises one orchid stem with one full flower, a half flower on a budding stem with additional inner flower markings. For sizes and sheet layouts See Specifications below.  You can also use this stencil as an 'add on' to our larger Orchids Stencil.

Graduated Painted Background Technique

To create a graduated painted background use 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 blending 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 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 soft brush.
