We are very pleased to introduce our new collection of portrait silhouette stencils! We suspect you will not find these stencils anywhere else. These beautiful framed cameo type portraits became especially popular from c 1750 - 1850. They were sometimes called shadow portraits.
Often cut freehand of black paper or traced on paper of the profile cast by candle or lamp light, these endearing images are simply wonderful stenciled as a set and framed in a small grouping. You only need to stencil the image in black paint to create an authentic effect. We expect that you will find many uses for these lovely stencils. Try stenciling on a sign for ladies or gents. Quite fun, we think.

Where do you use stencils? Looking at Tips and Ideas for stenciling projects can provide you with some great stencil project ideas from pillows to lampshades to floorcloths.
Do you have a newsletter? We send out a monthly newsletter to our customers with a complete and colorful project idea. This year we've made a Lace Heart Wall Pocket, a Rosebud Heart Keepsake, stenciled pillow covers with our Fruit Tile stencils, made a Scotty Tote Bag, and designed a Chili Pepper Kitchen Sign. As always, the featured stencils in the project are discounted heavily that month. Back issues of the newsletter will be archived on the website.
What are you stencils made of? The Artful Stencil only offers original designer stencils laser cut on the highest quality frosty Mylar material. The precision of laser cut stencils is unequaled in the industry for detail. The 10 mil Mylar that we use is superior to most materials being offered by our competitors. It is flexible, yet durable, and is very easy to wash and reuse. 7 mil and even 5 mil Mylar is commonly used by other companies, but provides you with a flimsy product that can be difficult to work with.
Can you change the size? Use the Contact Us form, or just call and let us know what you need. I'm happy to accommodate your needs. We also have a resident artist, Joni Prittie, that can make custom stencils from your artwork or fabric pattern. She has a lifetime of graphic arts experience and designed most of the stencils for The Artful Stencil store.
