If you love the forest, if you love a rustic, country look, this plaster stencil design is for you! Designed with long pine needles surrounding a beautiful pinecone, it would be just beautiful on cabinets, furniture, flower containers and even as a repeated wallpaper in the dining room.
How did we get this look? Simple: plaster the design with joint compound then once dry, sponge paint over it with light and dark wall paint, blended together well. Let the paint dry and mix a few drops of black craft paint with translucent wall glaze. Wipe the mixture over the raised design then wipe off any excess. After it’s all dry, use a small artists brush and paint the design with metallic silver paint for glimmer.
This stencil can be used with common paints or joint compound for raised effects.
Remember that you can use all of our Raised Plaster Stencils as painting stencils as well.
Raised designs are EASY with our beautiful stencils!
Use common joint compound (also called Wall Mud). It comes pre-mixed for you in a bucket and is available in the paint section of most home and hardware stores and acts just like frosting.
Just get some on a small trowel or putty knife and spread evenly over the top of the stencil, lift the stencil and there’s the design! It’s a cinch and a total ball! Now just let it dry.
Either paint the color of your wall as a simple raised design or paint with craft or stencil paints.
Joint compound can be pre-tinted if you choose or Color washes can also be done with wall glaze.
Plaster Stencils can also be used with wood putty for raw furniture, venetian plasters, tile grout, portland cement or any other product that dries hard.
Stencil is laser cut of 14 mil, heavy mylar and comes with complete instructions and full color photo of the finished design.
You’re going to LOVE it!
