Central stencil designs are wonderful single elements that are so versatile!
The styling of this particular design allows you to repeat it in to a larger medallion or repeated wallpaper design if you choose. I tend to use single elements such as this on cabinet doors, furniture and craft projects because to me, everything on the planet could use a little more design!
To create the look of aging on your plaster stencil designs, mix darker paint with translucent wall glaze.
Wipe the tinted glaze over the top of the design, allowing it to settle in to recesses, and then wipe off with a clean, dry cloth.
