Stencil and Metallic Technique

 

LOOK

This is a foil and stencil technique which is great for table tops or even door panels.  You could use gold or silver leaf, however, foil is less expensive and fun for a change.

First you will paint your surface using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.  We used Graphite to create depth because you will not completely cover with the foil.

Once you’ve painted your base it’s time to size your surface.  Size is the medium that will help your foil to stick to the surface.

Once the size is dry to the touch, usually about half an hour, you’re ready to apply your size.

We used a scrubby brush to glide over the foil. Be sure to lift your foil up and move it around in all direction until you’ve covered the sticky surface.

Next we placed our stencil and used Paris Grey Chalk Paint® to fill in the stencil design.

Once you’re done stenciling, it’s time to wax using Annie’s clear soft wax.

For a more aged effect, you can apply Annie’s dark soft wax as we have done with only half of our sample.
