Today, I am sharing my other Plaster of Paris DIY sign and a video tutorial.
So far my playing with the Plaster of Paris has been fun and successful. I still have more practice to do, but I feel the projects I have done thus far have been a disaster.
The other day I hopped on facebook live to share the how to stencil with plaster of Paris. I was sweating bullets and thought I was going to mess up.
But I didn’t! Thank goodness.
This sign took me a few days to finish. I am usually an immediate gratification kind of gal. I am learning patience though, and actually enjoying the process without rushing it.
After all what true artist can finish a masterpiece in 5 minutes? Well, if all they had was stencil they could. This technique requires a little more patience and skill. I had no skill going into this. So it doesn’t require much. Don’t be intimidated. Get yourself a few boards at Lowe’s and use one for practice first. They are so cheap it’s ok to waste one, and it won’t really be a waste because you master it the first time and even if you don’t that’s ok. Keep going and don’t give up. You can do it!
Before I share the video down below let me explain the rest of the process I did.
After the board dried overnight I lightly dry brushed some craft paint over the plaster of paris. Then I painted it with black gel stain. Let that dry overnight and the next day I my Home is where our story begins stencil. Don’t fuss about the lines not being clean on this project. Obviously, they won’t be, you are stenciling on top of a textured surface. After the stenciled dried I used a wax to finish it and after that dried I used a low grit sanding block to get the weathered older distressed look. Get creative and do it to your own liking to compliment your decor. The possibilities are endless I truly do believe. Let me just say this. I HAD A BALL doing this project.
Pin it, try it:)
I am not sure which project I like most so far. What’s your favorite one?
It’s suppose to look old world/rustic looking. Of course use any colors schemes that suit your taste and style. I will be hanging this sign on our front porch in a few weeks when I do a little Valentine decorating.
