Walls Stencils, Plaster Stencils, Painting Stencils, Plaster Molds

Huge selection of classic stencils for elegant home decor.

I had so much fun stenciling this cute table.

I found the base at a thrift store. It was in great shape and only cost $9.00 to purchase. I then added a solid wood top from Home Depot.

After a bit of sanding, a coat of primer, and a coat of black paint, I was ready to go!

I wanted the edge of the top to remain black, so I taped it off with painters tape.

I first found the center of the table by measuring in from both sides and making a mark to determine the center of the table. I lined up the center of our 8″ Fiore Tile Stencil over the pencil mark in the center of the table. I stenciled it with white acrylic paint.

I then lined up the outer elements of the stencil with the previous stenciled tile and repeated the design across and down the table. It was easy!

After a quick coat of satin polycrylic (which doesn’t yellow), I was done.

The finished table turned out absolutely adorable!

This is a great stencil for floors, back splashes and walls as well. It comes in 6, 8 and 10″ sizes for your particular needs.

 

Lo Mantaic is a very creative soul. Taking our Raised Plaster Freestyle Grapes Stencil and trailing it around the edge of a doorway, the look was already pretty.

But, after the design was dry, Lo decided add to the depth. It appears Lo may have used either joint compound in a cake decorating bag or even using a palet knife, Lo began adding to the depth of the grapes and leaves which made an incredible impact!

An easy way to do this would also be to replace the stencil over the dry design then adding more joint compound as well. The design was then painted and glazed to bring out further detailing.

The look achieved here was as if the design were actually carved right on to the wall as they used to do in ancient times and architectural plasters. 

Beautiful Lo and thank you for sharing!

When Julie Cook discovered our Raised Plaster Freestyle Bamboo Stencil, her mind went silly crazy and then her hands got just as busy!

The cool thing about the Freestyle bamboo is that all of the elements are separate so you get to create your bamboo anyway you want. First, repeat the bamboo poles then add branches. For interest, cross some of the poles for even more depth.

Simply cut the elements apart for easier use and then go nuts!

Julie filled the entire wall with bamboo poles and branches which creates a lovely and very interesting wallpaper design.

To get this look on your own walls, create all of your bamboo on a pre-painted wall. Allow the design to dry fully. Then mix a darker version of your wall color with clear, wall glaze, paint over the entire design then blot much of the excess off with a large sponge or old terry towel, allowing the glaze to remain in the deep crevices of the design. This will bring out the extreme detail.

Julie did such a fabulous job and I’ve loved showing her off! Thank you Julie!

Beryl Newell has been a Victoria Larsen Stencils customer for a very long time and I love what she does.

She painted her wall a soft cream color which is the perfect backdrop for wide and thin Aspen Tree Trunks from our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil Set.  I love the soft gray shading at each side of the trunks. That really makes them pop against the wall.

Then adding green acrylic paint to the joint compound, she is able to pre-tint the leaves in a soft green.

As we recommend, she has repeated the trunks right up to the ceiling so that they seem to just disappear above the ceiling.

But the think I love most? The sweet little bird she painted on the branch above the window.

Thank you Beryll! So pretty!

 

Now isn’t Jennifer Brown just clever?

That linoleum in her bathroom needed some punch. So what did she do? She used our Midland Wallpaper Stencil to give it a whole new look!

Wallpaper and floor tile stencils are all the rage these days and I have to applaud Jennifer for her “out of the box” thinking. 

How do you stencil a linoleum floor?

  1. Get it spanking clean.
  2. Prime it first with Zinsers Premium Pro Primer (which sticks to anything!).
  3. Paint the floor with porch and floor paint (I like Behr brand)  in what ever background color you wish to use.
  4. Stencil the entire floor with water based acrylic paint.
  5. Seal the entire floor with Polycrylic sealer (which won’t yellow and is super durable!).
  6. Admire your handy work and your pretty new floor!

What could you do with your old linoleum? Take a look at our wallpaper stencils and

tile stencils to see if they inspire you.

Darlene Drake Varney is just like me. She loves trees on the walls!

She used our Raised Plaster Sapling Tree Stencil on her staircase wall.

With joint compound, it’s easy to create raised designs on walls. Simply spread it over the stencil openings, remove the stencil then let it dry!

Darlene let the joint compound simply dry it’s pure white color and what a display that makes on her beige walls.

Great job Darlene! I have an entire wall of raised plaster Aspen Trees on my living room wall so this just warms my heart! Create just one tree or an entire forest! It’s up to you!

Darla Dawald has been a long time Victoria Larsen customer. I love it when she shares her creations with us. Who wouldn’t be inspired by her lovely work?

She shared these wonderful tables with us where she used our Plaster Lizard Texture Stencil on table tops. Wow, don’t they look high end?

 

Raised Plaster Lizard Texture Stencil

Look how lovely and ultra detailed the surface came out!

In her email, she lists exactly what she did for you:

 

Hi Victoria,

I wanted to share the completed end tables with the VL Crocodile stencil with raised plaster, with you.

I used Snow White general finishes paint on body, then I painted the top in a dark gray. Tinted the plaster with black acrylic paint to make it dark gray. Applied the stencil 3 times across the center then taped off sections to complete the raised plaster stencil on top and bottom 6 times. It took some time but I’m happy with the result.

I then used the modern masters metallics in platinum with glaze. After it dried I used the silver tinted slightly with black as a glaze to achieve the depth. I poly sealed it in satin General Finishes with 4 clear coats on the top only. The General Finishes chalk paint on the body doesn’t require waxing or seal (which I love).

Just listed them for sale.

Feel free to use my photos.

Darla’s techniques can be used on any piece of furniture or even to create a high end looking accent wall in a powder room. I love how it came out! Don’t you?

Cindy had always wanted a tile back splash and when she saw our Raised Plaster Standard Brick Stencil, she knew exactly how she was going to get it without cutting tiles, without mortar, without the mess and hassle.

You could do an entire wall with this great and easy to use stencil! Here’s how:

Simply paint the wall the color you would want your grout to be. Tape the stencil to the wall and smooth pre-mixed joint compound over the stencil openings. You can make the tiles look like stone tiles by simply leaving them more rough, but Cindy smoothed hers.

Once the first repeat is dry, line up the stencil and do it again, repeating this process until you have covered the entire desired area.

Now, give it a coat of polycrylic (which doesn’t yellow) to seal it against dirt and dust and you’re done!

Great job Cindy and it looks so real!

Julie McDowell is becoming an internet sensation with her gorgeous make overs of furniture! 

She partners up with General Finishes to create tutorial videos that you can learn so much from.

Julie did this beautiful buffet with general finishes paint, our Raised Plaster Antoinette Panel Stencil and gold leaf to add the beautiful design on this piece.

 

I love how she chose to leave the arched front drawer in natural wood while painting the rest of the buffet black. She plastered the design then used copper leaf over the design to not only add bling, but to add a metallic element to the buffet.

Julie certainly has an eye for design and I have loved every peice she has sent us!

Check out Julie’s website at: Dandelionsandpoppies

She has lots of instructional videos for you to learn from and become inspired to create your own awesome pieces!

Thank you Julie!

Darla is a long time customer of ours who never ceases to surprise and delight me with what she creates.

Here, she took our Raised Plaster Vertical Leaf Frieze Stencil and plastered it between two archways in her home.

She painted the wall after the design was dry and then did a darker color wash over the design to bring out the luscious detail.

Wouldn’t this look spectacular on a piece of furniture?

Thank you Darla! We’re formally in love!
