Stenciling with Annie Sloan paint – top tip!

Leave a comment

I’ve managed to work out how to prevent bleed through when stenciling – add some wax to your paint and mix into a paste (akin to the consistency of toothpaste) and then dab onto the stencil, using as many coats as required (allowing to dry in-between coats).  This tray was painted with Graphite, waxed and lacquered and then I applied with stencil with English Yellow mixed in with wax. My trays are available to purchase.

Please have a look around my lovely shop on Etsy where you can buy limited edition prints, camera accessories, notebooks and trays. Mapp of London came about through my love of photography – all the products are either my own photos or designed by me to fulfill my needs as a photographer. I hope you will agree with me that these are unique and lovingly crafted items.
