Stenciled Canvas in Marrakech

As I told you in this blog post, our most recent Peacock Painting trip project in Marrakech was themed around Moroccan embroidery designs from Fez. This style of  embroidery is characterized by a singular color of thread, usually black, on a cream-colored background. Our project incorporated a beautiful stenciled canvas.

Starting-to-stencil

The project was fairly simple and straightforward: stenciling the patterns in black on the interior walls of a canvas tent built especially for entertaining. The stencils were designed to coordinate and combine in various ways to create a unique, overall scheme.

Melanie-Stenciling

We started with a border. Then added a diamond pattern banded by a different border set on the diagonal.

Stencil-on-chair

Then we added a more complex lacy border to complete the dado area.

Hands-on-stenciling

It probably sounds tedious, but it was actually a LOT of fun. We felt like we were doing an old-fashioned quilting bee. The six of us worked really well together and Maggies’ music mix and nice l-o-n-g lunch breaks kept us humming along.

Stencil-in-progress

It WAS nice to near the end though, and as each subsequent “wall” was finished and rehung, we enjoyed being enveloped by our handiwork.

Cat-stencil

The cat provided a temporary distraction, but other than that was no help at all….

Stenciling-the-doors

So we continued on to stencil the door panels (that convert to awnings) in a coordinating pattern…

Final-Stencil-Stroke

until we got down to the last brush stroke….and then it was Moroccan Mint Tea time! My awesome little flock of Peacock Painters this time were Lisa Wilson, Nancy Jones, Angela Perrone, Alicia “LuLu” Danzig, and Miss Maggie O’Neill.

All of these stencil patterns have now been newly added to the Royal Design Studio website here. There are lots of ways to mix and match them and they will be equally fabulous in both bright and pastel colors!

  1. I have always wondered what you all do with the things you make while in Morocco??? I’d be fighting over who got to take them home! 🙂 Lovely and isn’t Marrakesh such a magical place?

  2. I absolutely love this! Is there any way you can share what type of paint or brand you were using?

    • Hi Cady, we stenciled the canvas using a black paint designed for fabric painting. There are many different types available. Actually, we ran out before we finished and switched to stenciling with regular black wall paint!!

  13. Superb, what a webpage it is! This website presents helpful information to us, keep it up.

  14. To clarify – we have not told customers to move off the platform… We are no longer able to offer Pay-As-You-Go images from Azure Marketplace. As such – existing PAYG customers have to acquire licenses from an Oracle / Reseller in order to remain compliant with Oracle licensing, essentially converting over to a BYOL. No image reconfiguration required, no downtime – just a compliance requirement to secure proper licensing.

  15. So if you’re expecting lots of help, be aware that this isn’t always forthcoming.This will offer you plenty of time and employ to brainstorm and make certain what you will betalking about is applicable and what you wouldlike to turn in. Reading and writing wherever possible certainly is thebest approach to develop a writing style.
