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!

 

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!

Alexandria wanted to give her dining rooml wall an updated, more modern look. The bright red had become a thing of the past in her mind.

She chose our Large Scabiosa Painting Stencil to doll it up a bit.

First painting the wall light gray, she then stenciled the flower randomly over the wall in two darker tones of gray.

Her black dining set really sets off that new focal wall in a beautiful, modern way.

Great job Alexandria!

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

ADoriables-AspenTrees-1

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!

 

Teresa John knew what she wanted in this room and she found just the stencil to create the look.
She first painted the wall a rich brown color then used our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil Set to create ceiling to floor trees to completely fill this lovely wall.

Using the joint compound as we recommend, she creates knarly looking bark that looks and feels like real bark!
Pre-tinting a portion of the joint compound with green paint took the step of having to paint the leaves completely away.

She called it fun…..I call it rustic elegance in a stencil!
Melinda re-did her dining room in a gray palet which is very modern and updated. But those lower panels needed something extra special.
She used our Raised Plaster Flores Panel Stencil with metallic silver paint over the darker gray paint color. Not only did it add a wonderful pattern to the panels, the metallic paint gave it an extra dose of glam!

Here’s what she said about the project:

“Your stencil is amazing and my project turned out GORGEOUS. I had planned to do a dimensional border, silver on cream walls above plain gray panels. But realized that the stencil is exactly the right size for the panels themselves. So instead I did silver paint on gray chalk paint. The result is incredible. Thanks so much”

Remember that all of our Raised Plaster Stencils can also be used with paint for any project you have in mind.
The creative Anna Krause of Collage Design Studio created this luscious canvas art for the walls of Spa Serenity.She used our Raised Plaster Bella Medallion Stencil for the design element. The canvas was first painted using dark paint then the stencil was cleverly layered over the top in different colors. Look closely and you will see the design in blues and brown in the background.

She also has some special advice for all of us when stenciling on canvas: :
“If a customer wants to do the plaster technique on canvas they should stabilize the back (around any stretcher bars) with some 1.5-2” insulation while they are working on it. The canvas, unlike a wall, flexes so it creates it’s own set of issues. I didn’t stabilize when I worked on this piece but I have experience-a newby would be frustrated and unhappy with the product. It would also help to lay the canvas flat.
My own advice is to use a product called “Golden’s Hard Molding Paste” when you’re doing canvas art. This is a product you can purchase at your local art or crafts store and remains flexible even when dry. It won’t crack over time and you can pre-tint it with any acrylic paint.
I love layered designs and this beautiful art just goes to show you how a single design can fill up an entire canvas and used as artwork or to create a beautiful layered wallpaper design.

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!
