Wendy Beeker loved the idea of a large tree on her walls, but she wanted a massive trunk and lots of branches!

She created the trunk on her own, using joint compound and paint, which was easy and fun. She made it rough and rugged and awesome.

But creating all those leaves would have been a real chore, so she chose to use just the branch from our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil Set

Once the branches were in place, she painted every leaf with metallic gold paint. Now that tree shines with glory!

Great job Wendy!

Jo loved the thought of a raised plaster stencil design on her ceiling. And she wanted a design that would look natural.

Jo chose our Raised Plaster Companion Vines Stencil set that includes the large vine and then a small sprig accent.

Using the stencil in a random pattern all over the ceiling, she then used the smaller sprig as a fill in design between repeats.

She mentioned that since she wanted the design as thick as possible, in spreading a very heavy layer of joint compound over the stencil, she found it sagged in the center.

The solution to this is to spread a thin layer of joint compound first and scrape it smooth. Believe it or not, this actually helps the stencil adhere better to the surface. Then without removing the stencil, spread the heavier layer you desire. The stencil now stays perfectly in place. Especially when you are working over your head.

Another trick for ceilings: If your neck tires easily, try using a travel neck pillow to brace your neck as you work. When I did my 10 foot ceiling medallion project, that neck pillow was a life saver!

After Jo finished her ceiling, she told me that she and her husband were selling their house and having a new home built. She mentioned that she loved this ceiling so much that she planned to do the same thing in her new home as well.

I can see why! It’s simply beautiful!

This would also be a lovely treatment for a focal wall in any room in your home.

Kathy Frates loves beauty, Kathy Frates loves dramatic decorating. But she’s also someone who loves the elegance of “tone on tone” She achieved that with our Raised Plaster Frilly Acanthus Stencil  

At the staircase in her home, there was a blank wall. Not a fitting place for a simple painting, but screaming for something wonderfully ornamental.

So she plastered the design and then painted over it with rich, chocolate paint.

All I can say is “Wow!”. This wall changed instantly from plain to beautifully elegant!

Simply painting over a raised stencil design gives you the look of embossed wallpaper. (You know, that highly expensive stuff!). So give it a try. Whether it’s on walls, furniture or ceilings, you’ll be amazed at the results!

Teri Chappel loves updated and modern and being the creative woman she is, she did a bang up job decorating this wall to achieve just that!

Using our Raised Plaster Stacked Stone Stencil, Teri used common joint compound with the stencil to create the stone wall. Joint compound dries pure white so there’s no need for painting or adding color to the compound in this case. Just be sure to pre-paint your wall the color you want the stone grout to be. In this case, the wall was pre-painted gray first.
What a perfect background to the adorable safety pin wall hangings!
Super job Teri!

plaster-stenciled-cabinet-pam-findley

Pam Findley was (and I mean “was”) like most of us. Construction grade cabinets in her kitchen and she wanted more. More I say! More!

And she got it!

She used our Raised Plaster Companion Vines Stencil to create beautiful raised vines on those plain cabinets.

She used the large vine stencil at the fascia board and then the smaller design on each of the doors, flipping and mirroring the design on each door.

I love the country finish she used for the cabinets, but she didn’t mention how she did it. Either way, it was quite an upgrade to those cabinets. Great job Pam!

Plaster stenciling real looking stone isn’t hard at all.

Sue Thompson loves the look of stone. But who can afford to have an entire interior wall done in stone by a mason? It’s a pricey job!

Sue found our Raised Plaster Stacked Stone Stencil and was elated to find out she could create the look herself with simple joint compound (about $12.00 a bucket!).

She first painted the wall the color she wanted the grout between the stone and then simply repeated the stencil over the walls to give that raised stone pattern. A quick wash of pale brown paint mixed with translucent wall glaze brought out even more detail in the stones by collecting in the natural recesses of the dried joint compound.

The Corner

The corners were easy to accomplish. Simply flip the stencil over backward on the adjacent wall and line up to the previous stenciling then continue.

Now, can you look at that photo and tell me it isn’t absolutely REAL?

 

There are just days where a stencil designer has to do something extraordinary to give herself a sense of true satisfaction.
My latest entertainment session wound up costing me hours in clean up work on the computer but I loved every single second of the task.
Peacocks in decorating are all the rage these days so I took that cue and created my own large, peacock stencil.

The fun part came when it was time to plaster and paint it!

My personal plans for this intense stencil design is to do it on canvas over a mural background then hang it as the focal point in my master bathroom
Plaster Stencil Grapes

Kate Aste loves Mediterranean style architecture and decorating. So for her Mediterranean style home, she chose to use our Raised Plaster Freestyle Grapes Border Stencil to add a beautiful raised design to her walls.

Using standard joint compound and paint, she trailed the grapes all over the kitchen walls and dining alcove.

Pre-tinting the joint compound with green and purple paints allowed her to apply the design already colored.

Great job Kate!

Elaine Thompson is an accomplished Artist and Pro Faux Finish Artist who creates beautiful finishes in the homes of her upscale clientele.

When she showed me this photo of what she did to a clients fireplace wall, I just about fell to my knees.

Its started out as a simple blank space. But after Elaine used our Raised Plaster Swirls Stencil, it became a wall of massive elegance!

She simply repeated the stencil over the entire surface to act as an embossed wallpaper design. It was the perfect design for this lovely space!

Eilis has a beautiful kitchen! But something seemed “missing” despite all that luscious stone and brick. So this creative person decided to create a dimensional back splash on to the blank space behind the stove.

plaster-stencil-back-splash-525

Using our Raised Plaster Annabelin Stencil, (flipped and repeated to create a much larger design), the stencil created a gorgeous element of design to add to this beautiful kitchen.

Framed in inset bricks and stone walls make this a perfect addition to this beautiful area.
