Editorial opinion:- The most popular are zigzag patterns made in two colors, for example, white and black, white and yellow, white and blue. Such options for contrasting colors facilitate the visual perception of the print, make it more readable. The width of the carpet in our example is 80 centimeters. The most optimal pattern sizes for it are as follows (see the template): Print the template. Transfer it to thick paper and cut it out. This is your stencil. Lean it against the carpet and circle it with a pencil. Then move the pattern downward, so that its upper part is fully in contact with the lower contour of the pattern already made. Circle the bottom of the template. Repeat this action until the carpet is finished. Glue the masking adhesive tape along the outer perimeter of each second zigzag. It will prevent unwanted ink penetration from the contours. Now, using a brush, apply the paint on the carpet fragments framed with adhesive tape (every second zigzag). When finished, gently remove the adhesive tape from the surface. That's all! You just have to wait until the paint dries, and a new unusually fashionable rug with a zigzag pattern will be ready to transform your interior.
