Plain Walls Are Transformed in to Stone Walls With Joint Compound
Creating the appearance of real stone walls is easy with a plaster stone stencil and common, pre-mixed joint compound. Sue Thompson (one of our favorite customers) shows us.
Here Sue begins her stone transformation by taping the stencil to the wall, smearing it with joint compound, removing the stencil then letting it dry. Repeating the stencil is simple.
How do you handle corners? Easy! Simply flip the stencil to line up the same stones you ended with on the adjacent wall.
Finishing is simply a matter of wiping a tinted glaze over the top of the raised stones to give them more depth and color. Translucent and tinted glazes also seal the stones (or any raised plaster stencil design).
