Concrete Stenciling Patterns
Stencils for concrete come in a variety of popular patterns ranging from running-bond brick to stone, slate and tile (see diagram). They come in rolls, like wrapping paper, with each roll measuring about 3 feet wide and 335 feet long (or roughly 1,000 square feet). The stencil is made of thick, tear-resistant paper covered with a water-resistant coating, similar to the material used to make milk cartons. The stencil pattern consists of only the "mortar joints," with the "bricks" or "stones" cut out.
