BUT a lot of work goes into these creations and while I have no issues sharing so you are able to create the work for your precious homes please understand that selling an exact duplication of my designs is highly frowned upon. :( Please always be considerate of another artists work. Thank you!***


  1. How do people create the patterns used for staining? Is it a stencil process? how do you keep the stain from bleeding under the stencil?
