Contrasting Bands in Imitation
of Carved Bas-Relief Molding

For greater elegance, contrasting bands, as pictured below, were painted first and beneath the stenciling. They were seen in white, grey, salmon, rose, yellow ochre, buff and blue against a wall of a different color.

The stenciling was applied to within 1/2" - 1/4" of the highest point of the band's lower edge. The fancy borders were reserved for the frieze at the top of the wall. Straight bands framed the walls, doors and windows, with stenciling done over them.

When using a straight band — no stencil is necessary — use painter's tape.
