    Do they come in anything else besides gold?

      You can use whatever color paint you want. The stencil is just clear plastic. You pick the paint to coordinate with your room.

    How do I take a rectangular shape stencil and shape it around the base of the fixture?

      From the photo it looks like a semi-circle is cut into the plastic of the stencil.

      If your stencil isn't designed specifically for this... Copy it onto white "Contact Paper". This way you can cut out the semi-circle for the chandelier:)

    Love it, but I'm wondering if the ceiling has to be flat? Unfortunately my apt has those stupid popcorn bumps.
    Thanks

      Popcorn on ceilings are really easy to remove! It’s literally just paper. Just spray with water & scrape. They sell scrapers & if you can get a helper, they can hold a large garbage bag underneath to catch the mess.

    where do I purchase stencil and what are the paints used for this project.

      hi Mary, I use a couple of different places to get my stencils. I like cutting edge stencils, as well as stencil revolution. Amazon has a great selection as well as Etsy. huge selections on either of those sites. You can use any paint you like really with stencils. I use left over Behr, craft paint, chalk paint, milk paint etc.. once you get the stencil bug you will really start stenciling everything! my hubs teases and says I would stencil the dog if she would stand still long enough! haha....hope this helps. Happy Stenciling.


      ps. I meant to add. Buy some spray repositionable adhesive any craft section has it, use a light spray as well as tape to hold your stencil. it really helps keep paint from bleeding.
