I get asked a lot of questions for stencil tips. It’s hard to explain without seeing it in action, so as I was working on this pair of MCM two-tier tables, I decided to record the stenciling part to help explain the technique a little better.
There were a few steps involved in redoing the pair of MCM two-tier tables. Before I stenciled the diamonds with paint, I had first created a raised stencil with our Fusion Embossing Paste. Here is the post explaining the process of creating raised detail with embossing paste in more detail. Using embossing paste with a stencil is an amazing ability to create a subtle raised detail. After it’s dry, you can paint over the raised stencil part making it all the same color of the surface of the piece of furniture, or you can highlight that raised stencil, like how I show you in today’s video.
Today’s video post ‘Stencil Tips’ is focused on how to stencil using paint. Although I’m stenciling over the raised embossed detail, this process of stenciling I show you in the video is the basic process of stenciling (with or without the raised part).
If you would like more detail on any part I may have missed, please reach out to me, I’d love to help you with your project.
