I LOVE what the Domestic Diva did with our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil.
Just beware….she uses caulk to create the trees and though that’s creative, if you ever wanted to remove your trees (for any reason), it would be difficult to get the caulk off the walls. However, use the same technique with pre-mixed joint compound, you can always sand and scrape them off if you wish to change patterns on that wall.
I am so proud to have Rustic Farmhouse Charm as our new retailer in the great country of Australia!
Most of our International customers already know that our products are difficult to ship internationally because they are super heavy duty mylar and can’t be folded or rolled so we’ve had no way for you folks to aquire our products in other countries.
But that’s all changed since Rustic Farmhouse Charm can ship to other countries for us!
Nicole Kulis sells re-purposed furniture. But when she started adding our Raised Plaster Stencils, she wrote me and said that her furniture pieces now sell so quickly! And it’s no wonder why. Suddenly, these plain furniture pieces turn in to ornamental beauties with designs that appear hand carved on the surface.
A plain occasional table that now has beautiful detail!
Now who wouldn’t want one of these adorable pieces of furniture as an ornamental focal point in a room?
When creating raised designs on furniture, there are a number of products you can use to create a more durable design. Consider WoodIcing, tile grout, or Durhams water putty (found at your local hardware store). Joint compound can also be used. Just be sure to paint over the design to protect it from chipping in the future.
I’m so proud to call Julie McDowell of Dandelions and Poppies to come up with the brilliant idea of putting artists and charities together!
Here’s what she says about her new group “Paint it Forward”:
Paint it Forward is a collective of artists who wish to give back to their local communities. Inspiring members of this group to select a matter or matters that they care deeply about in their locale, whether it be supporting a struggling neighbor or the homeless shelter down the road. They then use this platform to promote their cause and their work which can be sold for partial or full profit, whatever you can manage! A small act of kindness.
This is about raising awareness, making art matter even more, and paying it forward: one drop at a time
I highly encourage everyone to join this wonderful group! I did!
