"Katagami Stencil Kit #4"

A set of five pieces salvaged from vintage Japanese katagami stencils that were slightly damaged from decades of storage.

In this kit you'll get five different stencils, all small repeat designs. You can add the option for a traditional Japanese stencil brush (see photos) for an additional $12.

Each piece is approximately 4"x7". This kit includes the five designs shown.

See last two photos for some amateur results using regular watercolors. (Designs in the print examples are for demonstration only and are 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.
