The Chinese Lantern Stencil – is a designer theme pack stencil based on Henny’s striking drawings of the papery lantern-like flowers of the Physalis plant, known as the Chinese Lantern. This physalis stencil is ideal for designers and decorators passionate about botanical motifs and carefully observed designs with artistic integrity. The many different motifs of this versatile theme pack stencil can be used in many different ways to create striking wall features and modern botanical fabrics.

Easy to use theme pack stencil on two large sheets with 4 Chinese Lantern stems with additional lantern, leaf and stalk motifs for extending the design as required.  See size specifications below.  This page shows a range of ways the motifs of this theme pack can be arranged and stencilled.

Above – the different motifs of the Chinese Lantern Stencil stencilled onto a light, airy voile curtain, perfect for this kitchen window. Stencilled in Strawberry Red mixed with Sunny Yellow (lanterns) and Leaf Green (stems and stalks) Fabric Paint.

Above – stencilling the Chinese Lantern Stencil onto voile gives a beautiful effect – creating a stunning focal point for the room whilst letting light flood into the room. Motif Fabric Paints, once ironed with a hot iron, have a high standard of colour fastness withstanding light and repeated washing very well.

If you haven’t tried stencilling onto fabric yet give it a go!  The high absorbency of fabric makes good quality stencilling easy and it is a great way to ring the changes across the home. Using a good quality paint such as Motif Fabric Paint will ensure good results.
