It’s time for a Math lesson. I hate Math, so no worries: this one’s easy!
Amy Anderson, the awesome creative force behind the Mod Podge Rocks! blog, came up with a fantastic way to stencil designs easily with glitter. How? Using Mod Podge, of course, with her new line of adhesive-backed stencils!
These stencils fill a definite need in crafting with glitter, and come in six trendy designs:
Aren’t they fun?
I’ve seen quite a few projects on Pinterest using these stencils and was super-excited to get a chance to try them out myself.
I chose the Skeleton Keys stencil for my project.
Other supplies needed for this project include: Mod Podge Spouncers, Mod Podge Podgeable Glitter, and a Mod Podge formula of your choice – I used Antique Mod Podge. I also used a very small paint brush – think small makeup brush – to brush away excess glitter, which I’ll discuss in just a bit.
Here’s a closer look at a Mod Podge Spouncer, which is used to apply the Mod Podge to the stencil:
The stencils can be used multiple times, as long as you take care to wash them immediately after using. Just use soap and water to clean the stencils, nothing fancy. I let mine air dry – adhesive side up – on a scrap piece of paper and then placed it back onto its adhesive backing.
Fun tip: Try using sand instead of glitter, for a different effect!
