Stenciled Cork Art Tutorial

The last time I painted anything using a stencil was in grade school. It was a cookie jar lid that I begged my mom to send to Kirk Cameron (Oh, those Growing Pains!). Luckily I had the chance to redeem myself using FolkArt Multi-Surface Paint and Handmade Charlotte stencils to create this stenciled cork art.

Here are just some of the 40 colors FolkArt offers in their mulit-surface paint.

I knew I wanted more of the paint to show than the cork, so instead of using the stencil how it was intended, I used the part that popped out and painted around it. It was so easy, I broke it down into five steps.

I repeated the process on another trivet using a rubber spatula stencil. I decided to go a little "stencil crazy" on the third trivet and used two stencils two ways to get the desired effect.

FolkArt Multi-Surface Paint really is for every surface. Not just wood and canvas, but glass, metal, paper, styrofoam, and more. Plus it's dishwasher safe and machine washable. So I decided to try it on another surface…

I had a 10-inch, glazed ceramic plate that I wanted to put to use. I used the Lavender again, allowing each coat to dry, until the plate was covered. Then I added FolkArt Clear Chalkboard Paint. I love that I can apply it to any surface, so whatever the color undernieth is, the chalkboard stays that color! Here's the finished plate.
