Introduction: How to Create Embossed Details With Texture Powder
Step 1: Mix Texture Powder With Paint
Measure off some Country Chic Paint and pour it in a plastic cup. Measure off the same amount of Texture Powder and add it to the cup with paint. Use a stir stick to mix well until you have a butter cream icing consistency. We recommend you start with with a 1:1 ratio, however, you can always add some extra paint or extra powder is your mixture is too thick or too thin for your liking.
Step 2: Lay Down Your Stencil
For a small project like this you can simply hold the stencil in place with your hands. However, if you are working with a larger stencil, you may find it easier to secure your stencil with spray adhesive or painters tape.
Step 3: Spread the Textured Paint
Using a spatula, putty knife, or even an old bank card, apply a thin coat of your textured paint over the entire stencil. Make sure you don’t apply it too thickly or you may see some cracks forming as the finish dries. Smooth it out gently and don’t go over it too many times.
When your finish is smooth, gently peel off your stencil.
Step 4: Apply Another Paint Color
If you’re going for a fun, distressed look, apply a final coat of paint in a contrasting color. You won’t have to mix in any of the Texture Powder in this final coat of paint.
Step 5: Distress
After your final paint coat has dried for a couple of hours you can use your favorite distressing technique to reveal some of the paint layer underneath!
