Stencils are making a huge come back. Not only stencils themselves but the way you use them. My favorite stencils are layered which makes them a little bit more challenging but as you get the hang of it you’ll get a really cool end results.
Once you learn how to control the paint on your paint brush. You’ll have this technique down in no time. Here’s a look at the supply list. You’ll need a paint tray, paint. I’m using artist acrylic because it provides more coverage. Stencils, a stencil brush, cosmetic wedges and spray adhesive.
One way to modernize your stencils is to start with the decorative finish. I have started with striea another tip spray adhesive it’s my best spent. Now I can use 2 hands when I’m stenciling. Spray the adhesive, it’s like tape you can use it to hold the stencil in place but when you’re done it peels off easily.
I barely graze the top of the brush over the surface then I brush off the excess. Whether you’re dabbing or using a sneering motion that small amount of paint will prevent bleeding underneath the stencil. When you’re done no need to wait for the paint to dry, just peel the stencil off carefully. If paint has not seeped underneath the stencil use it elsewhere on the wall and keep painting.
The spray mount should stick for 2 or 3 uses. Stencils are so intricate these days but I love them because they add so much more color and depth to your walls. When you use multilayered stencils it’s critical to line a pattern up perfectly and here’s a helpful tool you may already have at home.
Cosmetic wedge I think not, stenciling tool. Make up wedges hold the perfect amount of paint and give you more control when you’re painting small areas. If you want to add another dimension to your wall try Venetian plaster, remember how, if not click on it. I love the hint of texture and shine that Venetian plaster adds to your stencil it’s those extra touches that really make a room remarkable.
For a custom look, mix up your decorative treatments anyway you see fit I bet you’ll be the only one in the block with a look like this.
