Trying her hand at Raised Plaster Stenciling, Andrea Delaney wound up doing something subtle and wonderful.
She didn’t say exactly the steps she took to do it, but I do know she applied our
Raised Plaster Acanthus Flourish Stencil to the wall near her stained glass ceiling fixture.
The way I would re-create this look is to allow the plaster stenciled area to dry completely, then paint over the entire wall in her luscious warm brown color mixed with a little clear wall glaze.
When I came to the area of the stencil, I would then use a terry cloth towel and wipe off just the design to reveal a much lighter version of the design.
I love the simplistic approach of creating just one element here and there. But I also really love covering an entire wall in a random pattern, turning the design upside down with every other repeat to create further interest.
Thank you Andrea!
I absolutely love the various ideas creative types like D. Starns come up with when using our stencils.
Examine this photo closely. Where I use a palet knife on it’s side to add deep black, horizontal striations to my Raised Plaster Aspen Trees, she used a paint brush and added very pale striations in soft brown paint that could have been diluted with clear wall glaze.
She then used metallic gold paint on her leaves. Done over gray walls really makes this design stand out beautifully! I only wish she would have sent a photo of the entire wall.
Very creative, very beautiful! She totally rocked this!
Deborah has been a long time customer that just keeps flooring me with her creative uses of my stencil designs.
She has such an enormous imagination and sometimes, that’s all you need besides the stencil design to create something completely unique and awe inspiring.
Using our Raised Plaster Francais Border Stencil, she used paint with the design in the center of this this cutsie headboard and then used the same blue paint to do a border and the posts.
Here, she used our Raised Plaster Palisades border stencil with pale gray paint to create a vertical border on her wall. Remember that any of our plaster stencils can also be used with any paint. You will simply find it to be the most high quality paint stencil you’ve ever owned.
You will see more of Deborah’s creations here in the future, and to be honest, I’m on pins and needles here! Thank you Deborah!
Now how could you not want to hang out in this back yard when you are surrounded by tall, beautiful daisies on a wood fence? What a cute idea that went viral once it was published and we couldn’t keep this design in stock.
Our Large Daisy Stencil is so easy to use. Simply stencil the stems, repeating them to any height, add the daisy flower head to the top and then stencil leaves where ever you wish. Stencil with a roller and you will find it a super quick job!
Stencil first in gray and then off-set flowers in white, with some covering gray daisies. It makes for a lush garden you will love! Now, imagine this on a wall inside the house! How fun and cheery!
Mark Yeda had a vision for his wall. He wanted something beautiful and unique to coordinate with his oriental statue.
He chose our Raised Plaster Palm Leaf Stencil to plaster a random, raised design on the focal wall.
The thing I absolutely love most is that he chose to keep the colors more subdued instead of making them bright. This give the wall a feeling of class and elegance. It’s easy on the eyes, yet adds such beautiful texture and interest.
I’m impressed Mark! Thank you so much for sharing!
Mindy Everaert loves the look of exposed brick as found on country farms and on Mediterranean buildings.
So she used our Raised Plaster Stacked Stone Stencil to give her home that same look!
I love her placement and how she did it.
Being a smart little decorator, she kept the stones in more soft, muted color.
How might you do it too? That’s easy:
Thank you Mindy! It came out GREAT!
