How to Stencil an Ikat Fabric Effect

Do you want to learn a super fast and easy stencil technique to create a realistic looking Ikat fabric effect on a wall or piece of furniture? Modern day Ikat fabrics are primarily printed to simulate the classic look of woven Ikat, but our new Khanjali Ikat stencil is designed with it's own vertical movement and blurred edge effect built in. This easy stencil technique will add even more of that special Ikat fabric vibe to the look. Visit our blog for the complete How-to.
