Our craft-sized art deco Lexington
stencil design makes a bold statement with classic deco styling where a wall stencil would be too large. These trendy furniture stencils are great for smaller DIY home decor projects like making your own designer pillows or curtains or transforming garage sale furniture finds into cool decorative pieces. It doesn't end there: try stenciling lamp shades, kitchen backsplashes, doors, table tops, picture and mirror frames, or create your own work of art on pre-stretched canvas. Decorative possibilities are endless with these versatile reusable stencils!
Did you know you can stencil on fabric too? Yes, you
can create custom stenciled curtains, pillows and table cloths with our
stencils! When stenciling on fabric, stencil adhesive is very helpful.
First, tape your ironed fabric to the surface so it doesn't move around
while you stencil. Use stencil brushes, or roller, and add some textile
medium (sold in craft stores) to your acrylic paint. You can also get a
special fabric paint, but, frankly, good craft acrylics with a dollop
of textile medium work just as well, and costs way less too! :) Let the
stenciled image dry completely, 24 hours is best, then heat-set it by
ironing the fabric for about 20 seconds (more or less) on a LOW setting
through the piece of cloth. Heat-setting will cure the paint and
prevent it from being washed off in the washing machine. Always
experiment with a sample of your fabric first to ensure good results.
I've stenciled on silk, cotton, linen and even sheer fabrics with great
results. It's always better if your fabric doesn't have too much
When stenciling on
furniture, you want to insure good adhesion. If the piece has a varnish or a
glossy finish you'll need to break the sheen. You can do this with a scotch
brite pad, steel wool or fine grit sandpaper. Lightly sand the surface and then
wipe down the piece with a damp cloth or paper towel. Next, basecoat the piece if you
want to change the overall color. Most acrylic and latex paints work well, but to insure good adhesion
you may want to use an adhesive primer such as Stix or Zinnser 1*2*3. These primers
can even be tinted to the color you want. After your primer/basecoat is dry you
can start stenciling with whatever paint you like. FolkArt acrylics and Benjamin Moore paints work great. You can just tape your stencils with pieces of blue painters tape, or use spray adhesive for a crisper look. If you
want to protect your artwork, you could then topcoat the table with a clear
topcoat (spray or brush-on).
Please make sure you watch our short step-by-step Video Tutorials! You'll
find them extremely helpful for your stenciling project. While prior
experience is helpful when working with repeat interlocking stencils,
even beginners get great results!
