Wall Stencils Add Exotic Elegance To An Accent Wall
Welcome back, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends. Enhance an accent wall in your home with a mesmerizing mandala pattern. Our Mandalas Stencils are perfect for adding an exotic splash of pattern to any bare wall. Today we’re sharing a DIY stenciled accent wall using our Radiance Mandala Stencil from the NEW Mandala Collection.
We’d like you to welcome back Greg, one of the Cutting Edge Stencils owners and a creative DIYer. Greg decided to put a stylish twist on one of the accent walls in our office. For our visual fans, you’re going to love this stencil tutorial that he put together. In this short video, he shows fans how easy it is to stencil an accent wall using a large Mandala stencil.
Let’s walk through the steps for completing this project. The first thing he did was choose a pretty Mandala pattern for this fun project, the Radiance Mandala Stencil.
With the gorgeous Mandala stencil in hand he was ready to start stenciling! Greg sprayed the back of the stencil with spray adhesive. This helps hold the design in place and reduce bleeding.
Greg was using the 74″ quarter medallion for this project. Because this stencil is so big, it needs to be rotated four times to complete the entire pattern. For easy rotation, Greg placed a thumbtack in the center of the medallion. This allowed him to turn the pattern after each section was painted.
Greg painted the pretty pattern in gray using a dense foam roller.
He made sure he brushed off any excess paint on a piece of paper towel. Too much paint will cause the design to bleed. Greg made sure he covered the entire design with paint before he rotated the pattern.
Greg continued to paint and then rotate the design until all four sections were painted.
When all four parts were finally painted, Greg peeled back the stencil to reveal the design.
Once the entire design was stenciled, Greg stepped back to admire the beautiful Radiance stencil pattern. Are you ready to see how it all turned out? Here is Greg’s stenciled accent wall.
This large wall stencil certainly adds character and charm to a once plain wall and we love it!
