Stencils can be fun and simple tools for making bold, graphic imagery on pots. You can buy stencils at craft stores or ceramics suppliers, or if you really want to personalize your work, you can make your own. There are a number of ways to do this with the easiest method being making stencils out of paper. But for more complex designs or designs with very fine components, adhesive stencil film and a screen are really handy.
