I built three large stencils 1.5 meter x 2 meter along with a stringed stencil that fitted within the others. By staggering variations of these stencils was able to yield the carpet optic the set designer was going for.

This is a detail of the original sample. I built three stencils from plastic sheets and net lace on wood frames with grips. An additional frame of laterally spanned strings on a wood frame that could be overlain the other stencils achieved the carpet effect. I used spray technique to get a cleaner effect.
