A set of three pieces salvaged from vintage Japanese katagami stencils that were slightly damaged from decades of storage. Still quite usable.

In this kit you'll get three different stencils, all small repeat designs. Each piece is approximately 12-14" x 17-18". This kit includes the three designs shown.

See last the photo for some amateur results using stencil paint. (The design in the print example is for demonstration only and is not included in this kit.)

Katagami are the stencils used to create layers of design on traditional Japanese kimono. Each one is cut by hand, either with a free-hand knife or a sharp and tiny punch tool. They are made from one or two sheets of heavy paper and then covered with persimmon juice to add strength and moisture resistance. Nowadays, more durable plastic versions are used, but these older paper stencils are often still usable in addition to being works of art. See the video below on a stencil demonstration.
