How to Apply a Wall Stamp
Give an edge to your walls with this geometric stamping technique.
What You Need
Four 8x10-inch sheets of crafts foam, 3/8 inch thick
Utility knife or scissors
Four plastic plates
4 pints of coordinating acrylic paint
1 quart of clear acrylic mixing glaze
Four sponge brushes
Latex or nitrile gloves
Gather materials. Draw four identical shapes on the crafts foam using a pen and straightedge. We used diamonds, but you could use any simple, repeatable shape. Cut out shapes with a utility knife or scissors.
Tip: If you're concerned about keeping your design on a grid, use a level, straightedge, and pencil to draw a few light guidelines on the wall every 12-18 inches.
Set out plates on a covered work surface. On a plate pour about 3 tablespoons of paint (one color per plate). Add 1 tablespoon of mixing glaze to each plate. Use sponge brushes to mix the paint and glaze.
