Your choice of silk or synthetic gauze, sha, woven in an open leno weave, is laminated to the carved stencil. Stencils often need additional support, especially when there are very delicate lines or free-floating elements. The sha supplies this support and also helps to reduce wear and tear on the carved stencil.
Each sheet is 19" x 40" – just the right amount to cover one full sheet of stencil paper. If you are ordering more than one sheet and prefer to have the silk sent as as one continuous piece, please let me know in the comments section when placing your order.
