Wall Murals: Rufus Porter stencil

Reviewed by:
Rosemary Thornton
Part of the Rufus Porter Collection, this pattern is one of 20 wall mural stencils offered. Rufus Porter was an early 19th Century artist, musician, teacher, inventor and the founder of "Scientific American" magazine. He was also a muralist who worked with stencils.

These contemporary stencils were created by tracing Porter's original murals which were discovered in an early 1800s New Hampshire home. The price for the stencil package needed to create this mural (pictured) is $65 and does not include paints.

The company also recommends a training video ("Rufus Porter School of Mural Painting") that showcases some of Porter's original artwork and murals ($29.95) (April 2005).
