• FROM WOOD ICING.COM: Textura Paste, Paris Grey & Pure White Chalk Paint®, and Clear Soft Wax
• stencil, mine is from
• brush, rags, cheesecloth or lint-free wiping cloth
Lacey Jane the kitty helper insisted upon assisting. I lightly sanded the door and wiped it off because it was shiny. Then I brushed on one coat of Paris Grey and let it dry.
I cut my stencil edges off, in order for it to fit inside the panel more easily. I put it in various positions that I liked, and simply used my finger to push a bit of Textura Paste through the stencil. It dries quickly.
Brush on a thin layer of Pure White, in random strokes so it’s not too perfect. Let dry. Use a wet rag to pull of areas of the pattern until you like the look. Let dry.
Use cheesecloth to wipe on one layer of Clear Soft Wax. Wait a few minutes and wipe off all excess. Buff to a soft sheen. If this is a piece of furniture, wait a day and add another coat of Clear Wax.
Pretty isn’t it!

    It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to use Icing. Had to create a stencil to create a missing piece on an old door.

    How long should I leave the stencil on after putting the Wood Icing on?
