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.
Suggested materials for this project:
- Wood Icing® Textura Paste (http://www.woodicing.com/)
- Lace (Fabric store)
- Chalk Paint® by Annie sloan (http://www.woodicing.com/)
Have a question about this project?Ask a Question
- Could this technique be used on a plaster wall or on dry wall to make an accent wall?
- I had never heard of "wood icing" and am wondering why you couldn't get the same effect by securing the lace and spray painting? It seems as though the wood icing would be rather thick and might not spread evenly...at least when I try thing that are supposed to work, they usually flop. I may not be as crafty as the next guy.
- You talk about lace that can be pretty expensive, but could you use those plastic lace table cloths that you can buy pretty cheap and maybe cut it in sections? Do you think that would work as well?
- Why did you use both textures on the same piece side by side. Was that Judy to show us both procedure?
- On the picture of the drawer fronts the background is a different color than the lace pattern. Is the lace pattern on the drawers painted, if so then how would you keep it off the background paint? Do you use the white wax on every thing you do? I'm confused.
- I don't think I can get would icing here (I live abroad), is there any other product with a similar qualities that I can use? Simple stuff like some type of plaster of some sort?
Would it be possible to use this Wood Icing & lace on a whole wall? I'm not sure if that isn't too big a project but I would love to see it in either a bathroom or bedroom.
I there something not store bought u can make yourself for the wood icing? Just thinking . . .
Love this. Do you need to stick the lace down with any fixative? It doesn't wrinkle or stretch as you spread the textura?
