I hate to waste paints so when I get a big patch of colorful spill or I have some paints left over in the bottom of my dirty pour cup, then I will dip or pour onto tiles to use that up. Which means I end up with a lot of pretty tiles, but they are all singles, orphans, they don’t make a set. I’m going to try to bring similar tiles together into a set by using a stencil.
Now if you have watched me trying to be crafty and use a stencil before, you might remember that I am definitely challenged and not a natural to this sort of thing. This time I’m thinking it through and trying to do better (but spoiler alert, I still make a terrible mess!).
Materials used in this project:
Temporary adhesive spray (try one of these stencil adhesives)
DecoArt Americana stencil in Doily design
DecoArt Americana Decor Metallics paint in Sterling Silver
Ridiculously tiny stencil brush (get a better one here)
Black spray paint (because I’m hopeless!)
So check out the video below. You would not think anyone could be so full of positive intention and then make such a terrible mess of a simple project. But let my mistakes be a warning to you and you can do a much better job!
Well, I still think it was a good idea, just bad execution! I’d love to see you being successful, so if you like this idea, give it a try and come and share your finished results in our Facebook Chat Group. See you there.
