What is stencil printing?

Stencil printing works by brushing or spraying ink or paint through the open areas of a stencil cut from metal, plastic or cardboard onto a sheet of paper to create the final design. The most common forms of stencil printing are silkscreening (see What is a silkscreen print?) and pochoir printing (see What is Pochoir printing?).
