Chinese Folk stencils.
Some of the Chinese paper cuts I have used as stencils are quite rare and no longer available. The tile created below is a good example of a 'thin line' piece. Removing the paper cut is done meticulously with dentist tools. It can take hours! They were traditionally made by rural woman but as China develops the practice is either being mechanised or 'artists' now make the souvenirs offered to tourists.
