Stenciling with Metallic Foils

Stenciling with metallic foils is a great way to add pizzazz and contrast to any design. The following tutorial will show you how easy it can be to create a wooden cross that has been stenciled with metallic foils using our super cute Rosie Posie Flower Pot Stencil.

Stenciling with Metallic Foils

I started with this fabulous wooden cross and base coated with Black Bondago.

Next, I applied a layer of the Foil Adhesive and allowed it to dry for at least an hour or better!

Using the Rosie Posie Flowerpot Stencil, I scattered flowers all over the surface randomly using Pink Foil and Teal Foil. I cut small pieces to make sure that the foil was only transferring to the area that I wanted.

Once you are done with adding as many flowers as I wanted, pick another foil to apply to the rest of the cross! I picked something super fun, Flower Power in Pink! Just cut another piece of foil that covers the entire surface. Lay the foil over the surface and smooth out with a soft rag. Then scrub with your plastic scrub brush to transfer as much of the foil as possible.

Make sure to add a layer of your favorite topcoat to protect the foils. We love our Final Coat and Golden Paintworks Topcoat!
