Stenciling We Love: Day 18
Debra Campbell, the owner of Wallartistry, stenciled this custom ceiling design over a metallic acrylic plaster background. After allowing the plaster to dry, Debra applied the stencil and rolled a coat of water-based gilding size and let it tack up. She then used aluminum leafing sheets and rubbed the leaf with a t-shirt towel. To give the leaf a bit of a patina and to prevent tarnishing, Debra waxed it with walnut Liberon wax. Lastly, she went back into the design with some additional wax on a brush to accent some areas, pulled the stencil, and voila!
Debra Campbell has been creating decorative finishes for over 15 years and started Wallartistry in 2000. She is also teaches workshops in the Dayton area, and is the Ohio distributor for Annie Sloan’s fabulous Chalk Paint™
