This cool lampshade from Page 7 on the newest issue of Flea Market Style was put together by Melanie and Valeria at Royal Design Studios, and they have shared tips and how-to information so that you may create your own!
Th"This project was extremely fast and simple and took an hour at the most," said Royal Designs founder Melanie. "The beauty of stencils is that they are an artistic 'tool' that anyone can use and master quickly. There is a very quick learning curve and the rewards come almost instantly -- as soon as you lift the stencil!"
First, the tips:
* Practice first on scrap paper.
* Key 1: Don't use too much paint on your brush. Dip just the tip of the brush into the paint and "offload" any excess paint onto a paper towel with a hard, swirling motion before proceeding to the pattern.
* Key 2. Pattern. Simply swirl the brush with a circular motion over the open areas of the pattern.
* Key 3: Pressure. Use a light, even pressure to keep paint from seeping under the stencil. It t is better to start light and build color slowly.
The how-to for this project, using the Small Fleur de Lace stencil, is here. And these are the instructions for using Royal Design's Stencil creams, a thicker paint designed especially for beginning stencilers.
FMS team member Cammie sprayed the castoff lamp base glossy white. With the lampshade on top, the finished product is one fab duo!
If you give it a try, we'd love to see your results. Send us a snapshot!
