Huge selection of classic stencils for elegant home decor.

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?

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!

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!

 

Joni McDonald is a creative little thing. Full of fun and lots of ideas. It even comes across in her emails to me.

Discovering plaster stencils has added to her creative side by giving her yet one more medium with which to create.

She pondered, she plotted and planned, she calculated and experimented, and she finally came up with just the right solution for her new need to embellish. She used a plaster stencil on her metal mailbox! Now what a novel idea and Joni is just the gal to come up with it.

Giving it a pretty patina paint finish, she then added the plaster stencil and painted it copper gold. Lovely isn’t it? Now, just imagine the oohs and aaahs coming from her mailman (or lady) the next time they deliver the mail. Joni delivers them some “beauty and originality!”. Joni graciously let me share this adorable project with you and for that, we all thank her! (Bowing to your greatness Joni!)

Dori thought she would give it a try: Our life-sized, Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil Set.

She first painted her walls deep gray then using joint compound, repeated the trunk from the baseboard up to the ceiling. Adding side branches came next then the leafy branches. On the leaves, she added green paint to the joint compound to save tons of work later!

What a lovely addition to this room! Great job Dori!
Remember that all of our plaster stencils can also be used with paints!

 

This is by far my most favorite artistic project!
In our home in the mountains of Idaho, we had a 27 foot bedroom, which also meant a 27 foot blank ceiling!
As I lay in bed one morning, staring at that massive ceiling, I got the bright idea to give it something so spectacular! Something that would just knock the socks off anyone who ever saw it (and trust me, it DID!).
I found the center of the ceiling, then measuring from the walls inward, equal distances away from the walls then taped off a big rectangle with a smaller rectangle inside.

I then painted that frame a tan color and sponged a brown glaze over the top to create a mottled color effect.

Finding the center of the frame and snapping chalk lines, I used our Raised Plaster Floral Medallion Stencil in a repeated fashion to create a large medallion right in the center. Pre-tinting the joint compound with brown paint helped to save me time later in trying to paint the white design. I used the same design in the corners facing the center of the frame.

Using plaster of paris, I cast our Oasis Plaster Mold over and over to create the pieces you see around the frame. In the corners, I cast our our Floral Medallion Mold and Grape Leaves Mold as fill in pieces.

That beautiful ceiling frame helped sell the house two years later.
Now I’m considering doing one on the bedroom ceiling in the house I currently own in New Mexico. 
Check out all of our Plaster Molds and Plaster Stencils and let your imagination help you decide how to give your home an exciting new look! There’s no end to what YOU can do!

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!

What a beautiful makeover Amber did with our Raised Plaster Francais Border Stencil! Instead of using it horizontally, she used it vertically on this beautiful chest to create a raised design on those awesome doors.

Notice the beautiful, light beige she painted the chest first. It gives this piece and updated, more modern look but with the ornamentation of an antique piece.

Great job Amber!
