Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. The act of using or the process of marking with a stencil; also, the markings, collectively, so produced.
- n. Specifically, in ceramics, the act or process of reserving spaces or patterns on the ware in ground-laying. A stencil, composed of rose-pink water-color mixed with sugar or common molasses, is painted on the places which are to be reserved. When thoroughly dry, boiled linseed-oil is laid over the entire surface, and when this has become dry the ware is immersed in a tub of clear water. After being allowed to soak for a few moments the stenciling medium is easily removed by light touches of a soft tuft of cotton, leaving the reserved patterns clear and clean.
- v. present participle of stencil.
