This is a great set of Stencils, especially if you like these Beautiful , damask type patterns. I used it with gesso and modeling paste. It is sturdy enough to hold up to the paste and flexible enough for easy clean up. It is handy to have all 5 attached for storage and to keep alike patterns together. I Would recommend these.
I love stencils! These did not disappoint me at all
They are made of plastic/mylar and are very detailed.
I have used them with modeling paste and with wood icing along with apray paint and am delighted with all of the results! I only have 2 more sets to buy!

I just love these, you just lightly spray or dab some color with these in place before adding your other pictures or items and whala! Elegance! Adds a really nice touch.
[Begin rant] But I hate hate that they are bundled together. I cut them apart as soon as I get them. Makes jagged corner but I can't use stencils the way they sell them -- I'd need three hands to hold the stencils still and spray or whatever. Stupid design. [End rant]
I happen to love wrought iron style patterns and pick them up whenever I find them. The designs are so different then all the background stamps and stencils. More detail and more geometric. Not a big flowers and swirls type. I use these primarily for tags. A nice background of whatever then these over the top in something shimmer, metallic, or contrast. Lots of fun. I'm always certain to get something sophisticated or maybe even sexy -- victorian, steampunk, wedding, vampire.... These are not an all the time stencil set but they are are fun to have around
