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!

Natalia Baldo just knew there was something she could do with her plain range hood and she found the perfect thing with our Raised Plaster Grapevine and Mold Stencil Set.

This is a stencil and mold “set”. The stencil includes vines and leaves, the plaster mold includes the grapes and leaves. Use the stencil with joint compound or other dimensional product, and use the mold with plaster of paris for super dimensional grapes and leaves.

We send super easy instructions.

Natalia chose not to use the leaves on the stencil, but rather use only the leaves from the plaster mold.

The final look is just beautiful and adds such dimension to the range hood. Lovely job!

This would also make a super exciting border all around the kitchen on the wall, either using it as a border against the ceiling, or draping over and down a doorway.

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.

plaster_stenciled_ceiling_close_700

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.

I fell in love with Raised Stencils the moment I plastered my very first design in 2001.

I love the raised beauty they produce, which mimics designs on the ceilings and walls of high end homes.

Plaster stenciling can be done on nearly any surface including tile!

In this example, I used Wood Icing from woodicing.com with our Raised Plaster Chancelor Frieze Stencil to create a beautiful design behind this stove.

Worried about splashes from food? Simply seal with clear, non-yellowing polyurethane to make it easy to clean.

Raised stencils are commonly used with plasters, but you can use them with paint too! You will simply find it to be the highest quality, most durable paint stencil you’ve ever used!

Terri and I have a lot in common. We love ornamental beauty!

Terri saw the perfect opportunity to add some dimensional ornament to her fireplace with our raised plaster stencils.

Using 3 designs for variety, she decked out the front and sides of the fireplace mantle and then on the wall above using our Raised Plaster Katherine Border Stencil, Our Raised Plaster Dresden Relief and our Raised Plaster Laureli Frieze stencil right in the center of the wall.

The look is very detailed and beautiful! Thank you for sharing Terri!

Bill Landers goes all out when he does something. He’s neat, organized and has an eye for all things original and totally cool!

In his garage, he had applied an awesome mural wallpaper on the back wall and though he loved it, he wanted to do something to the adjacent walls to complete the look he was after.

He chose our Life Sized Tree Stencil and used it to create a row of trees on the blank walls that really brought the space together.

Hand painted grass at the base added just the perfect touch.

He even stenciled the trees leading down the hallway toward the entry door!

What a fun place to work on projects! Bill, you ROCK! I just love creative people!

A sweet friend gave me large cabinet doors that she no longer wanted.

Heavy wood cabinet door with unique triangular carving.

Well, you know me, I’m seeing plaster stenciling and cast plaster art in my head! I LOVED the unique triangular section in the center. It had bumpy carving that would create a unique backdrop to cast plaster.

I’ve been wanting to do something unique for my living room wall and this was just the project!

plaster_molds

I cast the plaster pieces I want to use from our plaster molds then primed and painted them and the door with cream colored paint. I painted the triangle on the door in neutral brown to coordinate with my carpeting.

painting_detail

I dry brushed metallic gold over the triangle first, then when the paint was dry, again dry brushed it, this time with black acrylic paint. Catching only the very tops of the carvings really showed off the pattern, almost making it look like reptile skin. Cool!

Brush glaze then wipe off the excess to bring out the detail of cast plaster.

The plaster pieces were brushed with brown glaze then quickly wiped with an old terry towel to remove the excess. This brings out the detail in a huge way! Once dry, the cast plaster pieces were glued in to place.

wipe_finish

The border edge was plaster stenciled with our Tremont Furniture Border Stencil, brushed with glaze and then again, the excess was wiped off to reveal the design.

Once dry, I lugged that heavy piece in to the living room, climbed the ladder, hung it on the wall and delighted in my new art piece!

Linda Horton knows how to create a fun focal wall!

Using our Raised Plaster Palm Tree Stencil, she plastered a dimensional palm tree to liven up this great accent wall where she displays fun items such as her Las Vegas sign and great memorabilia.

Using colors that coordinate with items on the table brings the look together in a super cute way!

How would you use this palm tree stencil? I would love to use it on the stucco walls of my patio to create the look of a fun, tropical retreat. It would go perfectly with my large pond!

Great job Linda and thank you for sharing!

plaster_stencil_arched_trees-600

When I moved in to my new home in New Mexico, a 15 foot blank wall stared me in the face for months! Since I use my own home and walls to showcase new products, I decided my new Raised Plaster Arched Tree Stencil Set belonged on this wall, arching over my wood stove.

Yes, it was lovely, but after a few months, I missed my favorite design, my Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil. That’s always been my own signature design and my home in the mountains of Idaho featured 8, eighteen foot tall aspens accenting the walls.

So one afternoon, I scraped the arched trees off the wall and decided I would do my Aspens Trees on a pale gray wall. Gray is a neutral color and is so popular right now that I really thought I’d love it.

plaster-stencil-aspen-tree-gray_7

That certainly was the “design” I was after, but the color still wasn’t quite right for all of my furniture and my beige carpet.

I painted over the entire wall with cream colored paint, re-painted the trunks bright white with black bark accents and painted the leaves metallic gold.

plaster_stencil_aspen_tree-gold_7

Ah yes. That was it!!!!

The point of this story is that we spend money and put time and effort in to decorating our homes. But if once we do it, it just doesn’t “feel” right, don’t be afraid to make it right! This is YOUR home! You live in it every day! You see those walls day after day and if they don’t appeal to you for “whatever” reason (color, design, lay-out), put in the extra time to get it right. You’ll be so glad that you did!

And don’t think that it’s only “you” who has ever faced this issue. Even designers and interior decorators have encountered the same dilemma. What do we do? We fix it!
