One of the great things about my chair being featured in Country Living Magazine is that I have sold stencils to a lot of people who are complete stencil novices.
This post is for all of you first timers, I hope it helps and I hope it shows you how incredibly easy it is to achieve good results!
1) You will need:
paint for stencilling
spray adhesive or low tack tape
2) Wipe the chair to remove any marks, grease or dust. You can paint the chair in advance or stencil directly onto the wood.
4) If using spray adhesive, give the stencil a very light covering on the back in a well ventilated area. Lay the stencil in position on the chair and gently smooth over so that it has adhered to the chair. Alternatively apply tape to either side of the stencil.
5) Dip the tip of the dry stencil brush into the paint, and remove any excess on the paint pot lid, a piece of paper or even the corner of the stencil. It is very important not to have too much paint on the brush or it will bleed underneath the holes in the stencil.
