Detail of specialist decoration ceiling mural painted on canvas showing hand embellished stencil work on the strap work mouldings. The use of stencils is an expedient way to produce long runs of repeated mural design consistently. Hand embellishment of the stencil will then consist of altering the depth and direction of the cast and modeling shadow and the highlights - depending upon the direction of the light source. It is often the case that for the representation of mouldings in murals on ceilings bespoke stencils are designed and cut for the commission. (Back to Stencilled Specialist Decoration).
