The Japanese Water Chrysanthemum Stencil – a simple, modern Japanese style chrysanthemum stencil. The design has both positive and negative flower images, surrounded by simple water lines and floating petals.


The Japanese Chrysanthemum stencil is ideal for creating random effects on walls, panels, furniture, fabrics, bedlinen and cushion covers. This three sheet stencil allows you to arrange the chrysanthemums to suit your own scheme – spacing the flowers further apart for a simple more sparse feeling or closer together for a concentrated pattern effect.

This design lends itself to a range of colour schemes, working in different colours on different coloured backgrounds – it can be stencilled in muted colourways or bold, striking colours for contrast and graphic appeal. Try stencilling white or pastel greys on black or charcoal, or strong pinks on grey or blue. Or use classic, rich red on white, or white on red! Or use subtle metallics to give a subtle, lustrous effect that changes in different lighting – try our Metallic Stencil Paints or Interference Paints for this.

Stencil Rollers make stencilling this stencil even easier, particularly if you are stencilling white onto deeper base colours – the roller will help to build opacity.
