This beautiful Hermitage Acanthus Coffer
ornament was inspired by incredible painted ceilings of Hermitage Czar Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia. Its regal beauty is noble and timeless. By changing your color combinations you can create dramatically different looks. Experiment by adding metallic gold accents and various overall glazes and spatter. This design looks stunning in coffered ceiling in a library or living room, but also can completely transform a boring suspended ceiling into a work of art. You can also create a trompe l'oeil coffered ceiling - simply by adding frame and shading.
You can stencil with acrylic or latex paint, stencil creams, fabric paint or plaster of your choice. Use a foam roller or stencil brush. We recommend using stencil spray adhesive when working with large stencils, however it is not necessary. We just use blue tape.
These stencils are made out of durable 12 mil clear plastic stencil material.
This material is strong but flexible, reusable and easy to clean. We love it so much more than standard 8 mil Mylar! It's not brittle, user friendly and just so easy to work with. In our many years of professional stenciling this material has proven to be far superior than any other stencil material we used. Our customers love it too, and we are sure that you'll notice the difference! Our stencils will last a long time and are a pleasure to use.
