Stencil Reproduction
Reproduction of 9 historic stencil patterns with 2 to 8 colors. The reproduction patterns were approximately 7’ X 3’ for over 300 panels. Each pattern was traced, straightened and reproduced onto masonite panels. Each color was matched under a stereo microscope with reflected light.
