- Application & ideas
Layered stencil application:
To create a layered image, apply a thin coat of polishing plaster through a stencil and allow image to dry completely.
Applying a lighter Polishing plaster in thin coats over the background-stenciled image will allow the design to show through. Burnish* each layer using a palette knife, credit card or back of a metal spoon and increasing the angle and lightly scrapping the plaster. Burnishing will create a unique, polished effect that enhances the highs and lows of the colors with each coat. You may also “buff” each layer when dry using a soft cloth. Creating an “old world texture is effortless with polishing plaster.
