Wooden Plaques

Hello Friends,

Piyanki here today with another exciting, fun project featuring the Craftreat Stencils. You must have seen the array of home decor stencils that are there in the Craftreat catalogue.

Today;s project is a form of wall art and is a fun technique to work with Stencil. Let me give some peak into the projects.

1 -  Apply a thin coat of White Gesso on all the wooden plaques and let it dry.
2 -  Apply a think coat of any dark shade chalk paints. Rub some candle stick on the surface to create the chipped edges and also the distress edge.
3 - Once done then apply a lighter shade on top it and let it semi dry.
4 - Once partial dry chip off paints and also sand it with a sanding block so that on some places the background color exposes.
5 - Take your stencil and using a rolling brush transfer the image.
6 - Stamp some images with archival ink( Do not use distress ink here ) to create a background.
7 - Apply antique wax and rub off with a clean cloth.
8 - You can choose to apply a coat of varnish to finish this project.
