    That’s a brilliant tip about taping and top coating with the wall base color. Thank you!
    I look forward to seeing what the whole project looks like.

      Thanks David. I wish I was that brilliant to come up with it,lol. Apperantly they use that technique in museums and galeries.

      Believe me, it’s not that steady, I had quite a few mistakes to fix. 🙂

    How would you have taped off the round parts? So you’re essentially saying you wish you had a tape stencil, kind of, right? Just trying to figure out handy techniques!

      Hey Kari, sorry for the late reply. I actually had no idea how I would have taped them off; the painter’s tape doesn’t curve and since I made the stencil out of paper, it would have made a mess if I taped that to the wall and tried to paint on top of it.

      As for techniques, I used a very small fine brush to carefully (and slowly) fill in the round edges. I had a wet paper towel handy so if I messed up I could quickly wipe away the paint from the wall and start again. What helped the most was using a small paint roller to fill in the middle part. I tried to get as close to the edges as possible and them filled in the rest to the edges with a medium artist paint brush. That saved me a lot time.

      Hope that helps 🙂

    How would you have taped off the curved parts?
