Ok all you Faux Fans. I am about to show you a new Wallovers design that isn’t even part of our line yet. But put it on your “Wish List” because this one is gorgeous! Yes, I know it one of those, ugh, double layer stencils. But how else can you get the beauty of a hand painted, theorem look on entire wall without two overlays.
I started by creating texture with tissue paper. I am not showing that layer here because it is not necessary with the foil we will be using but if you want that added texture, apply creased tissue paper to the wall with a mixture of 50/50% Elmers glue/water before base coating. Here I am base coating with Ben Moore HC-37. My all time favorite gold, with a green hue.
For you experts who can see the crocodile print in the bottom left corner, you caught me. I am rolling over something else I started but that will disappear ( if you like the croc print, you can get that too), at Wallovers.com It’s called Wild Thing and was a huge hit recently at the Quilt show in Houston, Texas.
Next I applied a layer of Wundasize and let it dry until tacky.
Then released some Gold Crackle foil using a strong bristle brush. I wasn’t concerned with full coverage but the little bit of shimmer really added to the elegance!
Now comes the fun part. STENCILING. Layer one….
PLus Layer two…..
The pom elements create the perfect opportunity to bring in additional color. Love this one. If you do too, you can preorder with us and get 20% off. This design won’t be available for a few weeks but email us and get on the list. It’s called Pom Pom. Happy Thanksgiving!
