Using stencils in her artwork is one of Amy Rice's signature techniques, so when we saw that she'd written a book called Playing with Stencils: Exploring Repetition, Pattern and Personal Designs, we knew that it would be a useful resource. In addition to presenting a variety of stencilling approaches, the handy guide lays out 20 easy-to-follow projects. You needn't waste any time in rolling up your sleeves and getting to work: the instructions are clear and well ordered. Not one for DIY? Rest assured, there's plenty of stencilled art available from the source.
