How fair is this? Melanie Royals, stencil supremo gets to create this lovely stencilled panel. She does this in a beautiful house called Peacock Pavilions in the warmth of Morocco. Her accomplices are talented artists who are also friends. In between stencil projects, they go quad biking, feasting and shopping. Read about in either of their blogs. Bitter?? Of course I'm not bitter, but look at what I had to stencil this week!
Yep, I got to do eight of these beauties above fire doors in ugly storerooms in the coldest UK week for decades. Alone.
Seriously, there was one fun bit to my dull but useful stencil project this week. The text and pictogram were stencilled with phosphorescent paint so when the lights were turned off, the words and running figures glowed in the dark. Yaaay, a full thirty seconds of amusement. It also gave me a chance to show you how diverse the stencils in our collection are. Signage can be created from our In Your Own Words range at The Stencil Library or as a custom job. No, I am not green with envy. It's just reflection from all those fire exit signs. No, no really.....
Ps Melanie is the one in the red scarf. The group photo came from her blog.
