    Pochoir is a French word that means "stencil" and is a method of printing that uses stencils. It's also known as hand coloring or hand illustration. Pochoir is a refined technique for making limited editions of stencil prints.

    Pochoir was popular in Europe, particularly France, around the turn of the century and most popular from the late 19th century through the 1930's with its center of activity in Paris. In the 1920's and 30's Art Deco era, the French rejuvenated the color application process of the stencil, bringing color illustration processes for books and prints to new heights. 

    Pochoir is a very labor intensive and expensive technique, which produces an image that is often indistinguishable from the artist's hand-painted original. 
    Some pochoir artists include: Salvador Dalí, Sonia Delaunay, Raoul Dufy, and Joan Miró.
