How to Use Lace With Wood Icing® Textura Paste

3 Materials
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.
Using lace on drawer fronts.
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.
Spreading Textura Paste over lace
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.
Paint over the lace design

    Could I do this over wallpaper, the bagging kind with the poly on top? Wonder if it would stick to the polyuathane?
  • Donna Hall Donna Hall on Jul 10, 2016
    Is this only for wood? Can it be used on vinyl tiles if the tiles were sanded?
    • Wood Icing® Company Wood Icing® Company on Jul 10, 2016
      Wood Icing will adhere to wood metal or plastic. For metal or plastic, I would recommend roughing up the surface a bit with a coarse sandpaper, then I would apply a good bonding primer. My fav bonding primer is Gripper made by Glidden. Sold at Home Depot. Comes in gray or white. Hope this helps! Thanks for asking.

    Would Mod Podge work?
    • Diane Diane on Jul 11, 2016
      yes, I did that with mod podge on my small windows and used it on a dresser with nylon material. Yes it will work
    • Debra Ridley Hurst Debra Ridley Hurst on Jul 11, 2016
      Thank you so much! This looks like something I would enjoy doing. Moving this to my "TRY" file.
  • Marilu Garcia Marilu Garcia on Jul 18, 2016
    do you peel lace out after painting
    • Wood Icing® Company Wood Icing® Company on Jul 18, 2016
      Hi Mailu, Thanks for asking. You pull the lace off as soon as you spread the paste. Then let the Textura Paste dry (over night is best). Then give it a quick sanding and paint or stain!
  • Diane Diane on Jul 20, 2016
    It looks beautiful. I am confused with how the stenciling is painted once you remove the lace. Do you carefully line up the lace again over the stencils to paint?
  • Lori Lori on Jul 22, 2016
    wood icing, is there anything that can be used for wall with same technique ?
    • Nan Nan on Jul 22, 2016
      Lori - I've used this technique when I've created stencils of my liking from material. I've just spread a thin coating of joint compound over the stencil to get the raised relief effect. For coloration (I can be finicky) after the compound has dried, I used chalk pastels. I've used this method both on walls as a top border and on cornices in my living room.

    • Lisa A Downes-Poll Lisa A Downes-Poll on Jul 22, 2016
      I used drywall mud, and added acrylic paints. Worked great. Didn't do lace, did brickwork on walls.
  • Colleen Hammond Colleen Hammond on Jul 22, 2016
    It's beautiful, but... Why not just paint the piece, and then apply the lace directly to it?
    • Elizabeth Dion Elizabeth Dion on Jul 24, 2016
      That is what I did, basically. I laid the lace on the project and spray painted through it. There is a picture on this post somewhere...I sprayed white on an aqua base.
    • Gregory Maynard Gregory Maynard on Jul 24, 2016
      That makes for a good effect also, but this technique would have a more textured appearance.
    • Dee B Dee B on Jul 25, 2016
      She can remove the lace, still have the pattern, wash the lace and use it again. A good thing if you only have a limited amount of lace.
    • Colleen Hammond Colleen Hammond on Jul 25, 2016
      True, but I don't think I've ever suffered from a limited amount of lace.
    • Brenda Brenda on Jul 28, 2016
      The lace can also be wash again, with this process and reused again.
  • Biz1507351 Biz1507351 on Jul 22, 2016
    can this Technic be used for a kitchen black splash?
    • Pamela J. Ludington-Rice Pamela J. Ludington-Rice on Jul 22, 2016
      You might want to Google wood icing or Textura Paste to see the full description of the product and its uses. It might be that you would have to sand down the surface if the back splash is formica.
    • Darlene Heichelbech Darlene Heichelbech on Jul 22, 2016
      back in the 70's used to do this with patching plaster with grout color of choice
    • Janac Janac on Jul 23, 2016
      Funny I was thinking same thing, as I used wallpaper and painted it years ago, thinking of updating to something like this, great question and I think I would try it
    • Wood Icing® Company Wood Icing® Company on Jul 25, 2016
      BizzyLizzy Yes you can use this as a back splash. However it is not water resistant product. so be sure the back splash would not have water on it other than to wipe it down with a soft wet cloth to clean or dust. No scrubbing or harsh chemicals. Also, no reason to sand back formica. You would just need to rough it up with a coarse sandpaper to better adhesion.

      Isn't it funny how old is new again????
  • Alice Shockley Alice Shockley on Jul 22, 2016
    The video is quite good, but on the finished photo, it would be good if you could say which side is the pressed lace and which is the stenciled lace. Which side is which?
    • Bobbie Lynn Nemetz Bobbie Lynn Nemetz on Jul 23, 2016
      I'm 99.9% sure the left side of the finished photo is the stenciled side. Hope this helps.
    • Wood Icing® Company Wood Icing® Company on Jul 25, 2016
      Great suggestion. If I could clarify. When you spread the Textura Paste over lace then pull the lace up, the finish will be more defined and raised. When you press the lace into the Textura Paste it will be a more softer surface which may be a little smoother.
  • Kate Jones Kate Jones on Jul 27, 2016
    Is anyone aware of a UK equivalent of wood icing? could I use filler or another kind of putty?
  • The Piddler The Piddler on Jul 31, 2016
    I like the "removable lace" application..... How do you secure the lace from moving around? .....Would love to do this to a glass top coffee table top using the reverse glass painting procedure. Thanks in advance for your reply.
  • Could you use Sheetrock mud and accomplish the same look?
  • Marry Reeves Marry Reeves on Aug 21, 2016
    Can you color the paste first? If so what would work the best, a liquid acrylic craft paint or a powered dye? I ask because painting afterward blurs the detail of the lace and I want the imprint to stay crisp before the sealer is applied.
    • Wood Icing® Company Wood Icing® Company on Aug 25, 2016
      Hi Mary, yes I color the Textura Paste with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan. I t is not a perfect match but it colors quite nicely. However, doing so does cause the Textura Paste to be thinner. Which is why I love using the Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan. It is such a thick paint already so you can allow the mixture to stand in the open air until it thickens back up.
    • Marry Reeves Marry Reeves on Aug 27, 2016
      That's great, thanks for info.
  • Devra Devra on Aug 31, 2016
    Very pretty ! Do you use fabric lace or the vinyl lace, like for patio table cloths? Thanks
    • Christine Lauder Hall Christine Lauder Hall on Aug 31, 2016
      I'm fairly certain that it's soft, fabric lace, because in the top video she dips it in water and squeezes it tightly. You can't do that with vinyl fabric. But you may be able to achieve a similar result, but not likely as pretty. Good luck.
    • Wood Icing® Company Wood Icing® Company on Sep 01, 2016
      Thanks for asking! Yes I did use real fabric lace but you can also use the plastic lace. Then wash and reuse.
    • on Sep 01, 2016
      Lovely,and not difficult. Thanks for sharing. Lollie
  • Diane Diane on Aug 31, 2016
    Can this be used on the outside of a freezer ?? The freezer works wonderfully, but the outside looks YUCKY !!!
    • Christine Lauder Hall Christine Lauder Hall on Aug 31, 2016
      Wow! That's a great idea. I don't know for sure, but I will tell you that this technique should be able to be done with paintable caulk. I'm not 100 percent positive, but it sure I've used caulk to do many texturing art projects that I paint with acrylic pain. Good luck to you. :)
    • Wood Icing® Company Wood Icing® Company on Sep 01, 2016
      Hi Nayna. Yes you can use it on the outside of a freezer as long as there is no moisture that collects on the outside.
  • Amy Amy on Aug 31, 2016
    Could you use this on the blades of a ceiling fan and not affect how it works?
    • Wood Icing® Company Wood Icing® Company on Sep 01, 2016
      Hi Amy, yes you could but you would need to be sure you spread evenly and use the same amount on each blade because of the balance thing for fans.
    • Ella Teuben Ella Teuben on Sep 03, 2016
      The textured surface will collect dust and other particles very quickly. You would need to use a soft brush regularly to keep it clean
    • Dave Urbanoski Dave Urbanoski on Sep 18, 2016
      Couldn't you just use a few coats of a matte varnish this way the blades will be protected and you can dust without causing damage to the design on the blades.
  • Laura Rodriguez Laura Rodriguez on Sep 14, 2016
    Could this be done on a mirrored wall?

      I am not sre how yo answer that. The product will stick to a mirror but not certain as to how you plan to execute the process.
    • Lara Kulpa Lara Kulpa on Sep 19, 2016
      Maybe she was hoping YOU would give her the answer as to 'how to execute the process"?
  • Irene Kalfon Irene Kalfon on Sep 15, 2016
    Can you explain all the procedure from A to Z ? When do you remove the lace? Can it be done over a wooden door? Thank-you
    • Wood Icing® Company Wood Icing® Company on Sep 16, 2016
      1. Lay the lace onto the surface 2. Spread the Textura Paste over the lace. 3. Gently pull off the lace. 4. Rinse the lace and hang to dry. 5. Allow the Textura Paste to dry hard 6. Gently sandbover the surface to knock off any loose pieces or to remove riugh spots. 7. Paint or stainnover the lacey pattern. Allow to dry. 8. You can use wax or glaze to highlight the lace design. 9. If you prefer you can finish with a Clear cost of PolyAcrylic by Wood Icing instrad ofvusing wax for the finish.
    • Wood Icing® Company Wood Icing® Company on Sep 16, 2016

    • Touchedpainter Touchedpainter on Oct 13, 2016
      I am unfamiliar with wall putty, but I would use the "all purpose drywall lite (or light)" NOT "spackle lite", all purpose drywall light. Can get at any paint store, I get at Home Depot.

    • Frema Byrd Frema Byrd on Oct 20, 2016
      Tape mud, drywall mud, etc are the same thing. Be sure to coat it with (the word just blew out of my mind) it is a liquid paint like material that seals the mud when dry and prevents over absorption of your paint. I JUST REMEMBERED. It is PVA.

    • 3950805 3950805 on Jan 24, 2017
      So sorry I did not answer sooner. I missed it for some reason. Yes it will adhere to glass if your rough up the surface to give it tooth. But it will not hold up to water, so you could not submerge in water.
    • Jeannie Carle Jeannie Carle on Jan 24, 2017

    • Chris Brasher Chris Brasher on Mar 06, 2017
      I have used joint compound often which sounds very much like the wood icing. It's very inexpensive and not very messy. Since it's water based it's easy to clean up any tools, i.e. spatula. To use just add a water based paint of your choice into the compound before spreading or leave white and highlight when dry, or paint over entire project for a monochromatic effect. I have used this technique on walls, wood, and canvas, it's easy and inexpensive. Also works great with stencils. Sorry, haven't tried it on a window, but will give it a try as I'm sure it would work. Chris TX

    Can you do this on metal?
    • Wendy Tuch Wendy Tuch on Apr 30, 2017
      If you sanded (scuffed-up) the metal, you should be able to do this. You may need a different kind of finishing product, specifically designed for metal. Check with your local Home Depot, Lowes, or Ace Hardware.

    • 3950805 3950805 on May 01, 2017
      Hi Sam
      yes you could do this on metel. As Wendy Mention scuff the se surface. For bare metal you would need a bonding primer made specifically for metal. If it is already painted, proceed after scuffing. If the paint is shiny you may need to paint over with flat paint in order for the Texture Paste to stick better And to make it easier to work with.
  • Bonnie Bonnie on Apr 30, 2017
    what is wood icing thx
  • Mars Mars on Jun 07, 2017
    How is the lace held steady/firm?

    • Jewellmartin Jewellmartin on Jul 08, 2017
      Masking tape works well. It comes in different widths and is easy to cut in strips. It also does not leave a residue as long as you use it to tape down the lace and remove it when you remove the lace.
      I also use large office clamps, which often are wide enough for chair and table edges. Workshop clamps are often too bulky to use with lace and fabric. Best wishes 😇
  • 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 least when I try thing that are supposed to work, they usually flop. I may not be as crafty as the next guy.
    • Nancy Adams-Cook Nancy Adams-Cook on Jun 14, 2017

    • 3950805 3950805 on Jun 16, 2017
      Hi Linda and Nancy. The purpose of Wood Icing is to create texture. Spray painting over lace is beautiful as well. It's your choice To use whatever medium suits your needs. To see more projects created with Wood Icing please visit the web site.
    • Cindy Verkuyl Cindy Verkuyl on Jun 28, 2017
      I added privacy to my front entrance by spray painting white enamel paint over lace adhered to front window. Pulled off lace, beautiful and window is washable. Just scrape off when you tire of it.

    • Ebee Ebee on Jul 04, 2017
      It would seem to me that the other advantage (besides texture) would be that the lace is reusable after washing. Spray paint isn't. Also, if lace IS used more than once, the spray paint would eventually clog the delicate pattern which would eventually be lost. This would end up being more expensive as more lace would be needed ... and lace is NOT cheap!

      Go to the Woodicing website and look up your state. Each state has listings.
  • Cindy Cindy on Jul 08, 2017
    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?
    • KattywhampusLOL KattywhampusLOL on Jul 08, 2017
      Honestly, Cindy I don't see why not, except that using a plastic template would yield a deeper (thicker) relief and it might take longer to dry. Also, you may have a problem getting a clean line as you raise it off the board because of curl-back from the medium. The lace she was using in this video loked like a piece of old lace (and not the finely tatted and expensive stuff) that may have come from an old table runner or lace curtain. You can find things like that very inexpesively at thrift shops like Salvation Army stores and Goodwill, and sometimes even at yard/garage sales. Sometimes they may have a stain on the that cannot be removed, so they are being sold even more inexpensively (or can be talked down by 10% or so because of the stain). That's the type of thing you would want to buy for this project, rather than ordering lace from online or going to a fabirc/crft store and paying full price for it. It wouldn't hurt to check out a few places there in Cincy ;) Good Luck, Have a great time with your crafting, and enjoy the beautiful effect YOU create :)
    • Debbie Hovatter Larkins Debbie Hovatter Larkins on Jul 09, 2017
      The plastic tablecloths would not work, because they are etbossed over plastic, so when you lifted it off, the texture would be on the cloth, not on the wood,
    • B. Enne B. Enne on Jul 10, 2017
      @ Debbie Hovatter Larkins
      You make a valid point. A quick check before buying the tablecloth, by holding it up to the light to make sure it is cut out, may be a good idea. I have had open lace plastic tablecloths.
    • Kristine Kelley Bailey Kristine Kelley Bailey on Jul 15, 2017
      Goodwill or any thrift store... I just bought a huge lace curtain panel to lay on top of my patio table.... then spray paint over. The lace curtain panel at Goodwill was 3.00. Cheap for a huge stencil.
    • Bar24993395 Bar24993395 on Jul 24, 2017
      Let me add to the list of great ideas. You usually can find scrape lace pieces or even older lace curtains at most of the peddlers Malls and flea markets cheap if you have those in your area. Also you could join you local groups called : Freecycle or in your area. People are always giving away things they no longer need on Freecycle or selling things on Cheapcycle. Check those out too. With one of those you have to join the group and on the Freecycle group (on they ask that you GIVE away an unwanted item before requesting one to show good faith intentions. Good luck and blessings to all.

  • Starr Wilson Starr Wilson on Jul 08, 2017
    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.
    • Lori McIntyre Lori McIntyre on Jul 09, 2017
      i think she painted before peeling the lace off....i am not certain though
    • Herbal37 Herbal37 on Jul 17, 2017
      It looks to me like she painted first and then put the lace over it and used the texture paint. A similar technique is used in pottery.

    • Linda. F Mitchell Linda. F Mitchell on Jul 19, 2017
      Looks like the wood icing is the background color that appears then she took brush & lightly painted white over the raised design created by the wood icing coming through the lace holes.
    • Vina Vina on Jul 28, 2017
      confused. Do you apply the lace on the wood then paint the back of it, allow to dry then remove? need more pictures or details.
    • Velma Petersen Herrig Velma Petersen Herrig on Aug 06, 2017
      You need to watch the video. it shows 2 methods to use the "icing". you remove the lace with both techniques and allow to dry. Then sand just a bit to smooth. Then they used a chalk paint, then a white wax. I think with either method, the end product is supposed to show a raised lace pattern/texture - not necessarily 2 different colors.
  • San28489456 San28489456 on Jul 28, 2017
    So why couldn't you just spay paint and get the same pattern?
    • Rosanne Rosanne on Aug 09, 2017
      I actually tried this on an old desk. I lightly stapled the lace on as tightly as I could, without distorting the pattern. I usually rush thru things, so maybe I wasn't careful enough. It worked, but is not a neat as in this picture
    • Karen Chiasson Karen Chiasson on Sep 14, 2017
      I have done this before without paste. I painted the top of an old table with paint and let it dry. Then I laid the lace on top, secured it, and painted over the lace using a different color paint, then removed the lace. It came out perfect.

    • DuWayne Brayton DuWayne Brayton on Nov 14, 2018

      No reason you can't, if you're careful. I would imagine you would want to use synthetic fiber lace, but it should be possible.

      But it obviously wouldn't be embossed, which is the point of this project.

  • Elisa Martinez Elisa Martinez on Aug 16, 2017

    • Susann Campbell Susann Campbell on Aug 25, 2017
      I think that if you had enough lace then you could just brush on fabric glue on the surface, put on the lace and brush on top of the lace with more fabric glue, work from the middle out so wrinkles won't be a problem. Let dry for twelve hours and then paint what ever color you want. I have worked with fabric glue for some time now but not what this person did that was an inspiration to us all.
      I am going to do what I told you, I have a lot of lace and now I have many projects lined up just from this .

  • Sharon Sharon on Sep 21, 2017
    Do you use cloth doily or the plastic doily?
  • Denise Clairmont Denise Clairmont on Oct 10, 2017
    Could you do this on glass?

    What is that catchy tune being played with the video? I really like it!
  • C C on Mar 25, 2018

    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.

  • Claudia Groenevelt Claudia Groenevelt on May 13, 2018

    Hi, can you ise this to paint vinyl flooring? Looks great! Claudia

  • Tammy Tammy on May 19, 2018

    I there something not store bought u can make yourself for the wood icing? Just thinking . . .

    • Raeanne Ederle Raeanne Ederle on May 30, 2018

      Tammy I was thinking the same thing. But although this is store bought, perhaps wood filler, no more gaps (it's cheap and you can paint it.

    • Baba Baba on Jun 28, 2018

      Joint compound is something you can use also..... I think this product is stronger or more durable

    • Har33747246 Har33747246 on Jul 06, 2018

      Bob is right and so is Raeanne. There's actually a wood compound I use. Goes on hot pink and dries like wood to paint over or sand. Its from Walmart. I find them easy to work with and CHEAP.

    • Lissa Lissa on Jul 11, 2018

      Do you thin it with water?

    • Kiturah Humphrey Kiturah Humphrey on Jul 15, 2018

      I just used thick gesso with a stencil, not so complex but it did give a nice raised (slightly raised) pattern.

  • Barb C Barb C on May 20, 2018

    Love this. Do you need to stick the lace down with any fixative? It doesn't wrinkle or stretch as you spread the textura?

  • Gene R Petro Gene R Petro on May 22, 2018

    Is the finished project weather proof ? If so, how long to cure?

  • Nell Nell on Sep 08, 2018

    Can you used this on glass

  • Philomena Sherry Philomena Sherry on Oct 19, 2018

    Can you tell me ,what is wood icing please ?

  • DuWayne Brayton DuWayne Brayton on Nov 14, 2018

    Is wood icing durable enough for gilding?

  • Cwhenson Cwhenson on Nov 14, 2018

    Could you do this technique in an entire room? On an accent wall?

    • Rick Kale Rick Kale on Nov 24, 2018

      It can be but make sure you are in it for the long hall, and are committed to doing a whole room!! I suggest pick one wall as an accent wall!! Try it out first see how long it takes you, see if you like It (very important), see if you are comfortable with it!! A whole room done in this technique could be over kill and it not as easy to change as as paint a new color!!!

  • Jeanette S Jeanette S on Nov 15, 2018

    Could this "icing" be used to make the old fashioned plaster type borders that were used centuries ago to accent around the ceiling molding...or is it to fragile?

    • Rick Kale Rick Kale on Nov 24, 2018

      It most definitely can be done on a ceiling, personally I suggest to practice on similar surface to the ceiling you intend on applying this technique... if in an older home, be aware of what’s on the ceiling! Many homes from centuries ago put wallpaper on ceilings to conceal cracks in the plaster.... that being said, this technique you will be putting a wet product over the paper which could loosen due to the moisture... just be aware of what you are working with!!!

    • Mary Mary on Jan 04, 2019

      Yes it will! But before surface can take the dampness and practice practice practice!

    • Jeanette S Jeanette S on Jan 04, 2019

      Good advice...dampness can present problems as the wallboard surface paper could become detached!

  • Bonnie Bonnie on Nov 23, 2018

    Can the “icing” be tinted

    • Rick Kale Rick Kale on Nov 24, 2018

      It can be best if a heavier artist pigment is used over tinting it with regular paint, which may cause the product to get to thin thus loosing its integrity.... the icing also can be glazed after it has dried!! This creates a beautiful effect reminiscent to Venicean plaster!

    • FairyBug FairyBug on Jan 07, 2019

      How would glazed look? Anyone have any pics?

  • Janise Janise Janise Janise on Jan 03, 2019

    Will this work as well in damp atmosphere like bathrooms or on a house boat?

  • Jeannette Cluck Jeannette Cluck on Jan 26, 2019

    Can wood icing be tinted with food color? I've added food coloring to indoor paint to get the color I desired

  • Sandy Bledsoe Sandy Bledsoe on Feb 12, 2019

    I have an entire wall that the previous owners tore pieces of wallpaper and glued them to the wall. It would be very time consuming trying to take all the pieces off. Would the Wood Icing Textura Paste work using lace as was shown to cover the whole wall?

    • Catherine  Hays Catherine Hays on Jun 03, 2019

      Yes! I did a texture wall to my bathroom. It basically works the same way a stencil would. In fact if you do not want to use lace you can use stencils instead if you wish. I do all kinds of different finishes. Have fun!

  • Saira Khurram Saira Khurram on May 20, 2019

    Can we make wood icing texture paste at home?

  • Dorene Dorene on Jul 27, 2019

    Can wood icing be used on dry wall?

  • Frhendy Frhendy on Aug 02, 2019

    How to make the icing pasta insread of buy it?


    • Bernadette Bernadette on Oct 30, 2019

      I used a stencil and applied sheetrock over it to create a design on my cupboards. Then painted it.

    • Debbie Alley Debbie Alley on Nov 20, 2019

      Plaster of Paris maybe? I thought of that as I started watching this.

    • Virginia Virginia on Jan 05, 2020

    • Lynne Lynne on Sep 22, 2020

      I saw somewhere that you can add baking soda to glue, In this case - wood glue, to make a paste. I haven't tried it YET, but when I do, it will be on a small scale surface as a "test" paste.

  • Melanie Haugen Melanie Haugen on Sep 15, 2019

    I want to do this on my kitchen uppers only, cabinet doors and drawers, door have to paint over it? Or could I just clear coat for protection?

    • Lady Coyote Lady Coyote on Jan 10, 2020

      I would worry how hard it would be to clean in a kitchen. Let me know how it works out for you.

    • Tiffeney Tiffeney on Jul 16, 2021

      I would at least seal it for protection and cleanable. Wow it would look great drybrush antiqued with a very little metallic dry rub. Gives me ideas

  • Dorine Dorine on May 06, 2020

    Can I use this on a box

    • Steve Steve on Sep 09, 2020

      You can use this on your box.

      You can use this on your locks.

      If it stays still long enough

      you can use it on a fox.
