One of the principal objects of this invention is
to provide a stencil which may be utilized to
apply indicia to a surface prior to or subsequent
to the application of a background coat of paint
thereto whereby the indicia will be sharply and
clearly de?ned with respect to the background.
Other objects of this invention are to provide 1

notches. Hence, it it is desired to space adjoin

between the marginal edges of the body portions
and out-out designs, notches are formed in the
corners of the stencils to a depth equal to one
manner to serve as a masking device over an al
ready painted surface. Thus body portion 4 (Fig.

surface and paint applied thereover to produce
the represented indicia.
