This Friday is National Mod Podge Day, so we thought we’d share one of our most popular Mod Podge videos. It’s a neat painting technique to add a feminine touch to any project. Stencil through lace! We tried to stencil through lace just by holding the lace down and painting through it, but that did not work well at all! The paint seeped under the lace and the lace moved around too much. Then we tried it with Mod Podge. And it turned out great!
Here’s a video we made showing how to use Mod Podge to stencil through lace:
How To Stencil Through Lace
1. Start by cutting a piece of lace to fit your project. We are painting a drawer front in the video.
2. Paint a layer of Mod Podge, lay the lace over the Mod Podge, then paint a layer of Mod Podge over the top of the lace. This helps keep the lace in place and helps prevent the paint from seeping under the lace edges. Let the Mod Podge dry.
3. Next dab silver paint through the lace being careful not to use to too much paint. The idea is not to have the paint seep under the lace. To help with this, we recommend using a dry brush with just the paint on it. Dab the paint into the openings in the lace. Let the paint dry.
4. Peel off the lace. Some of the Mod Podge that was under the lace might still be wet, but don’t worry! Just let it air dry––it will dry clear.
This is a fun paint technique for home accent projects! We used it to make this jewelry box. To see the complete how-to, click here.
