Mandala Rustic Wooden Wall Art Decor.

4 Materials
A fun project to dress your walls with the amazing Mandala..


I asked my husband to build a 40" x 40" board with some of the wood pieces we have from pass projects.



I wanted a rustic kind of weathered finishing for the base but with some blue color mixed in there..
Immediately grabbed all the materials I needed :
Unicorn Spit Stains in
Gray
Black
Brown
Blue
Mandala Stencil from Cutting EdgeStencils
Paint mediums from Artisan Enhancements:
- Fine Stone
-VP Antico
-Clear Finish
Southern Blenders Metallics
Teal blue
Copper
Light green
Gold
Gilding Powders:
Green
Copper
Gold




Let's start blending all the UnicornSpit colors diluted with a little water. Just wet brush before adding each color.



It will dry pretty fast..



Center your stencil measuring your board. This is a 36" stencil that comes in half.. So let's start with the first half!



Using your paint mediums from Artisan Enhancements VP Antico and Fine Stone and with the help of a spatula or this wonderful color shaper, apply a thin or thick coat of each product in different areas until your fill the stencil. Let it dry and then repeat the same process on the other half.



After you finished both sides let the board dry....



Now that it is dry, put the stencil back on the first half done and already dried matching back the stencil with the design already done..
Now add your metallics with a small brush (One brush for each color) doing a tapping movement.



Again same process on the other half...



You are almost done!
Now with metallic gold paint and a natural sea wool sponge tap the gold paint all over the board even on the stenciled areas.



Wait about an hour before sealing the board, I used the Artisan Enhancements Clear Finish for a little shine.



Your wall art is done!!

    I feel really silly, but I cannot find the Unicorn Spit in the colors mentioned above in your post. They all have eclectic names, but I am not sure which ones you used? Am I missing something? Or looking in the wrong places? Your piece is so gorgeous and I really want to do something similar with an old table I purchased and I love the colors you used.
