I have always loved stencils. I use to stencil rooms back in the day when everyone was stenciling walls. I've done it on rugs, doors, signs, fabric, purses, well I guess you get the idea.
I was so happy to provide our VerDay Paints to Stencil Girls when they contacted me for their blog hop. I can't wait to see what everyone creates and love getting new inspiration from other artists. The idea is to use our VerDay Paints on whatever you choose and of course, incorporate stencils from Stencil Girls. I've been in their "stencil club" for almost a year and love getting new stencils every month.
For my project I thought I would do leather coasters. Yes, you can paint Leather! To see how to create with our VerDay Paints you can check out the video here. This video we use our VerDay Cloth but our paints go on the same way with leather.
I used one color on each coaster and then sprayed the VerDay Patina on all of them. I got a little of the iron paint on the top right one which is copper then iron, the second row is bronze and brass.
I used these stencils on all the coasters.
Taking a sponge and a little black acrylic paint I simply held down the stencil on top of the leather and then patted the paint on top. Use more of a dry "brush" pat on the stencil as you don't really need a lot of paint.
Carefully lift off the stencil and you've got a really cool design. Each stencil will showcase the pattern differently. As the lower right brass coaster shows more of the VerDay paint than the others. But, I think the Iron (upper right) looks really cool and graphic.
This one shows the giant floral stencil. I love the bits of color coming through from the VerDay Paints.
