Michelle Cavanaugh decided to give this old curio cabinet a new, updated look with silver paint and our Raised Plaster Parkland Posey Stencil.

She first added the raised stencil to the upper sides of the cabinet then painted the entire cabinet with silver paint.

The raised design gave it even more decorative appeal. I love the elegance this piece now has and obviously, Michelle is very proud of it. I can see why!

The question “can you use plaster stencils with paint?” comes up all the time. The answer is Absolutely! We use our plaster stencils with paint regularly. What you will simply find is that our plaster stencils will be the most durable, high quality painting stencils you have ever owned!

Natalia Baldo just knew there was something she could do with her plain range hood and she found the perfect thing with our Raised Plaster Grapevine and Mold Stencil Set.

This is a stencil and mold “set”. The stencil includes vines and leaves, the plaster mold includes the grapes and leaves. Use the stencil with joint compound or other dimensional product, and use the mold with plaster of paris for super dimensional grapes and leaves.

We send super easy instructions.

Natalia chose not to use the leaves on the stencil, but rather use only the leaves from the plaster mold.

The final look is just beautiful and adds such dimension to the range hood. Lovely job!

This would also make a super exciting border all around the kitchen on the wall, either using it as a border against the ceiling, or draping over and down a doorway.

suitcase_beforeWe either have them now or we’ve had them in the past: That black, non-descript black suitcase!

I’ve stood such a long time at the conveyor, waiting to recognize my own black suitcase (that looked like every other black suitcase!).

But NO MORE I say!

I stenciled it!

To stencil your suitcase, Add a piece of cardboard in to the front pocket to stabilize the canvas.

Now, you can simply choose your favorite stencil design and stencil it with standard bottled acrylic craft paints.

I used green acrylic paint that matched the handle and logo on my suitcase.

I used our Miss Lynn Stencil to add a pretty design to the upper and lower corners of the suitcase.

Now if that isn’t recognizable, I don’t know what it! It’s also stylish and cute!

This would be a great design for canvas bags, purses and even clothing!

 

 

All of the doors in my home are standard 6 panel doors.

Well, you know me, I like something more, something unusual, something exciting!

So I created a series of panel stencils that are perfectly sized for these types of doors.

I used our Raised Plaster Chaumont Panel Stencil to create the design on each panel.

See how perfectly it fits in each panel? 

I simply used joint compound then painted the entire door with door and trim paint that matched the color of my walls.

Now, I LOVE those doors and have done every door in my house, including the entry doors!

See these designs for your doors! (But they also make exquisite border stencil designs!)

stenciled_table_before

I found a cute little folding table for my patio at the thrift store. Just $4.00!

I took it home, cleaned it up and spray painted the top black.

I then added a spray pattern of gray/ blue.

Then patterns of metallic gold

After it was all dry, I taped the stencil in place at the edge of the table, allowing only part of the pattern to be visible on the edge of the table.

A 1/2″ stencil brush and black acrylic paint were used to add the stencil design to the table. For this project, I used our Raised Plaster Leaf Panel Stencil.

Remove the stencil, by gently peeling it back, to reveal the pretty new stencil design.

The black design against the muted colors of the top of the table making for a striking new look!

Give it a coat of exterior sealer for outdoor use.

It’s never ceased to amaze me how you can take a thrift store find and turn it in to something really awesome with just paint and a stencil design!

Now, it’s a part of my yard decor and is something I use regularly and just love!

Table-Before

It started out as a dump site find. Solid wood, round, with a single broken leg. Now, how could I resist? I hauled it home and surveyed the damage.

A little wood glue and clamps over night fixed the broken leg and I was ready to get started!

I gave it a good sanding with my electric palm sander and primed it top to bottom.

I then added raised plaster stenciling with wood putty to the sides of the top.

Once dry, I painted the entire table jet black and hand painted the raised designs with metallic gold craft paint.

Using our Raised Plaster Astana Medallion stencil with standard acrylic paints. Yes, you can certainly use any of our raised plaster stencils with just paint.

I centered the stencil on the round top and gave it a gorgeous design.

The table legs and trim also go a lick of gold metallic paint to finalize a beautiful make over of this table.

Now, it looks like a super expensive piece you might find in a specialty shop!

I found this awesome website giving tutorials on how to emboss aluminum and tin using stencils for the patterns.

Now how fun is that? Our Raised Plaster Stencils would be the perfect stencil thickness for projects like this because they are thicker than most designer stencils and would hold up well to repeating the pattern.

Wouldn’t this be awesome for a kitchen back splash?

Wendy Beeker loved the idea of a large tree on her walls, but she wanted a massive trunk and lots of branches!

She created the trunk on her own, using joint compound and paint, which was easy and fun. She made it rough and rugged and awesome.

But creating all those leaves would have been a real chore, so she chose to use just the branch from our Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil Set

Once the branches were in place, she painted every leaf with metallic gold paint. Now that tree shines with glory!

Great job Wendy!

Here, she used our Raised Plaster Vine Medallion and Mold Stencil set to add beautiful medallions to the front of this chest.

The stencil set includes the medallion stencil and a round plaster mold to create the inner medallion you see attached in the center.

With the stenciled medallion done in white and the plaster medallion painted the same color she painted the chest, the look is so elegant!
