Mrs Hinch gets creative with Stencils!
Mrs Hinch was spotted on her Instagram stories using our tractor stencil to create some wooden pallet pictures for her son. As you can imagine there was a buzz of excitement round the office as the stories unfolded.
Here is how she got on. All photos are from @mrshinchhome Instagram stories.
Her dad had made her some boards out of old pallets and she wanted to re-create some wall art she had seen on Pinterest. So she bought our Tractor Stencil and was just gonna use up some old paint samples she had left over.
You really don't need much paint for stenciling so small paint sample pots are perfect for the job. Here she is getting the paint ready.
It looks like she started stenciling by holding the stencil in place with her hand. This is not ideal as the stencil can easily move.
However it looks like she quickly realised this and used masking tape to hold the stencil in place.
A bit of masking tape will make all the difference and stop your stencil from moving whilst you paint.
Mrs Hinch used a sponge paint dabber for her stenciling. These are perfect for small stenciling projects. Just remember to remove the excess paint before you start stenciling. Best to dab it on some kitchen roll or old newspaper first. This helps prevent the paint bleeding under the stencil.
Here are her finished wooden pallet pictures. She plans to varnish them which is a great idea, then put them up in her son's bathroom. We think her son Ronnie will love them. We will keep an eye out on her Instagram for when she puts them up on the wall.
Thanks Mrs Hinch. Happy Stenciling x
