Jill Visser, an experienced stylist works alongside co-author Michael Flinn, who is the Managing Director of the Stencil Store shops, of which there are now 20 in the UK alone.From Library Journal:
These two books will provide a wealth of ideas for those interested in this decorative painting technique. Hickey begins with a review of the supplies needed and techniques used, then provides clearly illustrated and well-written instructions for projects to decorate floors, furniture, and walls in a variety of styles that include nautical themes, flowers, and the Southwest. Visser and Flinn's book is a picture book showing how stencils have been used to decorate every room of the house as well as furniture and flooring. There are no projects or instructions. Jane Gauss's Stenciling Techniques (LJ 5/15/96) remains the best comprehensive work on this painting technique, but Hickey will be a good choice if more books on this topic are needed. Purchase Visser and Flinn if there is a strong interest in this subject.
