The creative Anna Krause of Collage Design Studio created this luscious canvas art for the walls of Spa Serenity.She used our Raised Plaster Bella Medallion Stencil for the design element. The canvas was first painted using dark paint then the stencil was cleverly layered over the top in different colors. Look closely and you will see the design in blues and brown in the background.

She also has some special advice for all of us when stenciling on canvas: :
“If a customer wants to do the plaster technique on canvas they should stabilize the back (around any stretcher bars) with some 1.5-2” insulation while they are working on it. The canvas, unlike a wall, flexes so it creates it’s own set of issues. I didn’t stabilize when I worked on this piece but I have experience-a newby would be frustrated and unhappy with the product. It would also help to lay the canvas flat.
My own advice is to use a product called “Golden’s Hard Molding Paste” when you’re doing canvas art. This is a product you can purchase at your local art or crafts store and remains flexible even when dry. It won’t crack over time and you can pre-tint it with any acrylic paint.
I love layered designs and this beautiful art just goes to show you how a single design can fill up an entire canvas and used as artwork or to create a beautiful layered wallpaper design.

Barbara Walker is one of my favorite customers. Not only is she super friendly and fun, she has an eye for art that I just love.

Here, she took our Raised Plaster Fleurs D Amour Stencil and used it as a central (wallpaper type) design over rough plaster walls.

Doing a brown color wash over the wall first created a beautiful backdrop for the more colorful design she added. After the joint compound was dry, she painted the flowers a cheery blue and the leaves and stems of the design with a more sage green color. If you look close, you can see that she shaded every leaf on just one side with a deeper green.

Beautiful Barbara! I fell in love the moment I saw it!

Alan Ball, being the creative man he is, decided to try something unique with our plaster stencils.

Instead of simply spreading the joint compound over the stencil as we have been doing since 2004, he used a brush and a tapping motion to give the design even more texture.

Since he wanted to do a design to add interest to his kitchen, he chose our Raised Plaster Brassio Stencil to do the project. He used a border stencil to create uniform frames, then plastered the Brassio Frieze stencil as a twin central design.

Looking close, you can see how his brush created incredible texture in the design:

Nicole Kulis is a very talented lady who re-purposes and then sells furniture. Her pieces are done with class and style and once she discovered our Raised Plaster Stencils, she said they now sell so quickly and she is obviously pleased with that fact.

I loved this particular project where she re-did a side board.

The cool part was, when she added our Raised Plaster Brassio Stencil to the front, she centered it right over the two drawers that open!

When you open the drawers, look at the cool result!

This piece is now drop dead gorgeous and I doubt she had it in stock for long!

Michelle Cavanaugh decided to give this old curio cabinet a new, updated look with silver paint and our Raised Plaster Parkland Posey Stencil.

She first added the raised stencil to the upper sides of the cabinet then painted the entire cabinet with silver paint.

The raised design gave it even more decorative appeal. I love the elegance this piece now has and obviously, Michelle is very proud of it. I can see why!

The question “can you use plaster stencils with paint?” comes up all the time. The answer is Absolutely! We use our plaster stencils with paint regularly. What you will simply find is that our plaster stencils will be the most durable, high quality painting stencils you have ever owned!

aspen_tree_wallJeanne Antonio decided she wanted something really grand on her bedroom bed wall.

Coming across our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil Set, she knew that was just the thing!

Plastering the trees over the blue walls was easy with just joint compound. I love how she crossed some trees over the top of others.

Leaving the trunks in brilliant white, she used metallic gold paint to paint the leaves.

This wall now had the look she dreamed of and adds such beauty to the room.

Thank you Jeanne! We love it!

We’ve all had worn furniture in our lives that we probably left behind or disposed of in some way or another. But Barbara is my kind of gal. A “Rescue Artist”!

This poor little occasional table really needed help. And Barbara was just the gal to give it new life!

She started by painting the top black and then using our Raised Plaster Brassio Frieze Stencil with just metallic paint over the top made it super elegant and just so darned sweet! A coat of light colored paint at the rim of the top, pedistal and legs gave it an awesome new look. Notice how she painted the tips of the legs black? That gives it a coordinated look that is quite smart!

Any of our plaster stencils can be used with paint rather than dimensional products. You’ll just find it to be the most durable, high quality paint stencil you’ve ever owned!

stenciled_suitcase

suitcase_beforeWe either have them now or we’ve had them in the past: That black, non-descript black suitcase!

I’ve stood such a long time at the conveyor, waiting to recognize my own black suitcase (that looked like every other black suitcase!).

But NO MORE I say!

I stenciled it!

To stencil your suitcase, Add a piece of cardboard in to the front pocket to stabilize the canvas.

Now, you can simply choose your favorite stencil design and stencil it with standard bottled acrylic craft paints.

I used green acrylic paint that matched the handle and logo on my suitcase.

I used our Miss Lynn Stencil to add a pretty design to the upper and lower corners of the suitcase.

Now if that isn’t recognizable, I don’t know what it! It’s also stylish and cute!

This would be a great design for canvas bags, purses and even clothing!

 

 

stenciled_door_close

All of the doors in my home are standard 6 panel doors.

Well, you know me, I like something more, something unusual, something exciting!

So I created a series of panel stencils that are perfectly sized for these types of doors.

door_before

I used our Raised Plaster Chaumont Panel Stencil to create the design on each panel.

stenciled_door_close

See how perfectly it fits in each panel? 

I simply used joint compound then painted the entire door with door and trim paint that matched the color of my walls.

Now, I LOVE those doors and have done every door in my house, including the entry doors!

See these designs for your doors! (But they also make exquisite border stencil designs!)

I found a cute little folding table for my patio at the thrift store. Just $4.00!

I took it home, cleaned it up and spray painted the top black.

I then added a spray pattern of gray/ blue.

Then patterns of metallic gold

After it was all dry, I taped the stencil in place at the edge of the table, allowing only part of the pattern to be visible on the edge of the table.

Tape_stencil

A 1/2″ stencil brush and black acrylic paint were used to add the stencil design to the table. For this project, I used our Raised Plaster Leaf Panel Stencil.

Remove the stencil, by gently peeling it back, to reveal the pretty new stencil design.

The black design against the muted colors of the top of the table making for a striking new look!

Give it a coat of exterior sealer for outdoor use.

It’s never ceased to amaze me how you can take a thrift store find and turn it in to something really awesome with just paint and a stencil design!

Now, it’s a part of my yard decor and is something I use regularly and just love!
