Debbie Sharp is obviously a gal with vision and creativity.
When I opened her email and saw this beautiful version of our Raised Plaster Anastasia Stencil, I was just amazed at what that beautiful background did for our lovely plaster stencil design.
Here’s what she wrote in her email:
“I want to say thank you for the stencils that you create….I love the one I purchased…and the service was amazing. This is what I made from your stencil using venetian plaster and Amy Howard milk paint colors. I am a current student of Amy Howard’s Old World Finishing Course. I love how this came out!!! Beautiful stencil and I will be back for more as soon as I can”.
Debbie has obviously found her sources for true inspiration. The depth of the background, with it’s lights and darks against the raised design create a visual dimension that is just mesmerizing!
Thank you for sharing Debbie!
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!
Catherine is a pro and my gosh, I was blown away when she sent me a photo of this delicious armoire.
Catherine had a vision in her head: To create a beautiful interior to this lovely piece.
So she painted the inside a stunning lipstick red and then stenciled our Bamboo Wallpaper design inside with gold metallic paint.
Even the doors got this same treatment. So lovely!
Irida Kyriakopoulou had a worn chest that she wanted to give new life to. It indeed needed some attention. And what a wonderful job she did!
Giving it a new paint color and then sanding back to make it look more antiqued, she then applied our Raised Plaster Romantique Stencil over the cabinet doors. Because of it’s shape and size, this stencil is just perfect for furniture make over projects. Tape off smaller elements of the design for application to drawers if you like.
With one applied to each door, this stencil gave the cabinet such a beautiful new look.
New hardware helped it to look new again.
Thank you Irida!
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:
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?
