Plain white ceramic or acrylic bathroom accessories are not expensive, and you can easily dress these up with stencils and Rust-Oleum 2X spray paints, to add delicate designs that are perfect for a bathroom.

 

YOU WILL NEED:

Stencil

Plastic file folder or acetate sheet

Craft knife and cutting mat

Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint in your choice of colours

Small container or can top

Artist's paint brushes

WD-40 or mineral turps

 

 

 

CONTINUES BELOW

 

 

 

 

HERE'S HOW:

 

 

1. You don't need expensive stencils for this project, just some plastic file folders, a sharp craft knife and a cutting mat. Print out the stencil designs below and then enlarge or reduce as required. There are plenty of suppliers online who manufacture ready made and custom stencil design.

 

 

2. Place the printed design under your sheet of plastic and cut out with a craft knife. It's as easy as that!

3. Use masking tape to stick the stencil onto the item to be painted.

 

 

4. Spray some Rust-Oleum 2X into the small container. I used a paint tin top. Rust-Oleum 2X spray paint can be applied to wood, wicker, metal, plaster or unglazed ceramic. Where applied to glazed plaster, give the surface a light sanding with 180-grit sandpaper. The fast-dry formula resists chipping and fading.

 

 

5. Use an artist's paint brush to apply the paint into the cut out areas of the stencil.

 

 

If you are spraying onto a flat or large surface, use masking tape to attach the stencil and spray over the stencil.

 

 

Only remove the stencil once the paint has dried. Spray some paint into a small container and then use an artist's paint brush to apply any touch ups around the edges.

GOOD TO KNOW: I listed WD-40 and mineral turps, because I always have a can of WD-40 at home and it is perfect for removing spray paint from small paint brushes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can use this technique to stencil on other bathroom items as well. Apply to mirrors
