Huge selection of classic stencils for elegant home decor.

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!

Darla Dawald has been a long time Victoria Larsen customer. I love it when she shares her creations with us. Who wouldn’t be inspired by her lovely work?

She shared these wonderful tables with us where she used our Plaster Lizard Texture Stencil on table tops. Wow, don’t they look high end?

Look how lovely and ultra detailed the surface came out!

In her email, she lists exactly what she did for you:

 

Hi Victoria,

I wanted to share the completed end tables with the VL Crocodile stencil with raised plaster, with you.

I used Snow White general finishes paint on body, then I painted the top in a dark gray. Tinted the plaster with black acrylic paint to make it dark gray. Applied the stencil 3 times across the center then taped off sections to complete the raised plaster stencil on top and bottom 6 times. It took some time but I’m happy with the result.

I then used the modern masters metallics in platinum with glaze. After it dried I used the silver tinted slightly with black as a glaze to achieve the depth. I poly sealed it in satin General Finishes with 4 clear coats on the top only. The General Finishes chalk paint on the body doesn’t require waxing or seal (which I love).

Just listed them for sale.

Feel free to use my photos.

Darla’s techniques can be used on any piece of furniture or even to create a high end looking accent wall in a powder room. I love how it came out! Don’t you?

Darla is a long time customer of ours who never ceases to surprise and delight me with what she creates.

Here, she took our Raised Plaster Vertical Leaf Frieze Stencil and plastered it between two archways in her home.

She painted the wall after the design was dry and then did a darker color wash over the design to bring out the luscious detail.

Wouldn’t this look spectacular on a piece of furniture?

Thank you Darla! We’re formally in love!

 

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!

Joyce Hewton from www.RusticFarmhouseCharm.com comes up with the cutest ideas!
This little desk got the most adorable make over when Joyce used our Chinese Rose Tree Stencil Set over the top of the desk.

I love the very neutral brown she used for the main body of the desk and then did the drawers in a delicate blue. Notice the nobs are also painted brown to coordinate.

On the top of the desk, she created the look of chinoiserie by repeating the trunk stencil, adding leaves and roses and finally adding the tropical bird in the same pale blue she used for the drawers.
What a fun and unusual make over!

This is by far my most favorite artistic project!
In our home in the mountains of Idaho, we had a 27 foot bedroom, which also meant a 27 foot blank ceiling!
As I lay in bed one morning, staring at that massive ceiling, I got the bright idea to give it something so spectacular! Something that would just knock the socks off anyone who ever saw it (and trust me, it DID!).
I found the center of the ceiling, then measuring from the walls inward, equal distances away from the walls then taped off a big rectangle with a smaller rectangle inside.

I then painted that frame a tan color and sponged a brown glaze over the top to create a mottled color effect.

Finding the center of the frame and snapping chalk lines, I used our Raised Plaster Floral Medallion Stencil in a repeated fashion to create a large medallion right in the center. Pre-tinting the joint compound with brown paint helped to save me time later in trying to paint the white design. I used the same design in the corners facing the center of the frame.

Using plaster of paris, I cast our Oasis Plaster Mold over and over to create the pieces you see around the frame. In the corners, I cast our our Floral Medallion Mold and Grape Leaves Mold as fill in pieces.

That beautiful ceiling frame helped sell the house two years later.
Now I’m considering doing one on the bedroom ceiling in the house I currently own in New Mexico.

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.
Margaret Tarkington knew exactly what she wanted to do on the exterior of her home and it had to be cheery and colorful! And what she did feels like it right out of a Bavarian village!
Using our Raised Plaster Art Deco Flower Border Stencil with just paint, she first painted the exterior trim with dark green paint then added the stencil design in lighter green for the body of the border and then brilliant red and yellow for the flowers.

All the windows and doorways were done in the same manner.

What I loved about this set of windows is that she decided to paint the frames between the panes of glass with the same lighter green she used in the border design. Set against that dark green background really made this set of windows come to life.

Keeping the stencil design above the doorway only allowed her the creative use of paint she’s done to create this welcoming entry. Picking up the lighter green again, and buttery yellow of the flower centers, she brightened up the doors to create a real focal point.
I honestly just wanted to get on bended knee and applaud her for this wonderful make over of the exterior of her home. It’s unusual, creative and so cheerful! Thank you for letting me share Margaret! You did a spectacular job!
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.

Here, she does a make over on this chest of drawers using our Raised Plaster Palisades Frieze Stencil.

She created a multi-tone back ground over the piece then used this stencil with paint to cover all of the drawers. Creative and so beautiful! 

Julie will soon be doing a live tutorial on hometalk.com watch for it!
