How to Use Lace With Wood Icing® Textura Paste

1,941,567 Views
Quick little video showing how to use lace with Wood Icing® Textura Paste
I show how to spread the Textura Paste over the top of lace. And I also show how to press lace into the Textura Paste. We paint both with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. We used this technique on the Flag project we posted.
"How To" Use Lace with Wood Icing® Textura Paste.
Such a stunning design for drawer fronts. Find the perfect lace for your project and turn any piece into a work of art using Wood Icing® Textura Paste.
Wood Icing is water based with easy fast clean up. No harsh odor or chemicals. Wash out the lace and use it over and over.
Once your design is dry, you can paint, stain or glaze for a beautiful finish. Wood Icing® Textura Paste is an extremely durable product.

Materials I used for this project:

  • Wood Icing® Textura Paste   (http://www.woodicing.com/)
  • Lace   (Fabric store)
  • Chalk Paint® by Annie sloan   (http://www.woodicing.com/)

      Lay the lace down, spread the Wood Icing, Textura Paste. Pull out the lace and let the new finish dry. then paint or stain. Wash your lace and do it again and again. Table tops, drawer fronts or boxes.

    I've done this same thing using lace and drywall mud, makes a great textured wall!

    yep, I too have done this with joint compound and it does work great. Cheesecloth instead of lace will give an elephant leather look, just let dry and paint a flat grey. It can also be made to look like alligator hide.

      Thanks for sharing that technique Carolyn, I will have to try that technique. I had seen it done years ago, but had forgotten about it.

      Wood Icing Textura Paste is non toxic. Thanks for reminding me to mention that as well.

      Thank you Linda for mentioning an alternative to Wood Icing Textura Paste. I too have previously used spackling paste for walls. It does fine for walls, however I found in the long term for furniture it did not hold up as well. It seemed to chip more easily. Wood Icing Textura Paste is also non toxic.

    Gary Lord, had a book out called "Its Faux Easy copyright 2004"... check out how he did this lace finish on a wall. Spectacular, and really bumped it up a notch. Could easily be done on furniture.

    So beautiful! Do you leave the lace or cheesecloth on then after the paste is dry? Just a tad confused on that part when someone says "stencil". Help please!

    I just did something similar on my drawer fronts by simply laying the lace over the drawer tops and spray painting through it.

      Thanks, and although the lace is a little stiffer after the first application, it CAN be used again.

    Oh how I love Hometalk. So many beautiful new projects, so many questions. It's amazing how some people have a fantastic idea then post photos showing how simple it is then so many of us say huhhhh! Whatyoumean???. I really love the elegance of the lace and your wood icing. I also love Elizabeths lace and spray effect. So delicate looking. Well done both of you.👏👏👍👍

      They say to stay away from matchy-matchy. Sounds like you have the perfect project for this. Isn't this a great idea though?
