Plaster stenciling real looking stone isn’t hard at all.
Sue Thompson loves the look of stone. But who can afford to have an entire interior wall done in stone by a mason? It’s a pricey job!
Sue found our Raised Plaster Stacked Stone Stencil and was elated to find out she could create the look herself with simple joint compound (about $12.00 a bucket!).
She first painted the wall the color she wanted the grout between the stone and then simply repeated the stencil over the walls to give that raised stone pattern. A quick wash of pale brown paint mixed with translucent wall glaze brought out even more detail in the stones by collecting in the natural recesses of the dried joint compound.
The corners were easy to accomplish. Simply flip the stencil over backward on the adjacent wall and line up to the previous stenciling then continue.
Now, can you look at that photo and tell me it isn’t absolutely REAL?
