This is one of my favorite techniques for painting pottery!

Lace-stenciling:

Prep: Tape off any areas that you do not want to paint with painters tape.

Step 1. Paint 2 thin coats of a light color of paint (I used white), allowing the first coat to get tacky before painting the second.

Step 2. Paint a thick coat of white paint, then press the lace into the paint right away. The lace will be held in place by the paint.

Step 3. Paint 3 thin coats of blue paint over lace with a sponge, allowing paint to get tacky between coats. Be careful not to lift the lace while painting, or else the paint will seep under the lace.

Step 4. Peel off the lace and painters tape.

Tips: The smaller the holes in the lace, the more difficult it is to use this technique. I like to pick lace that has a geometric pattern and larger openings.

Love it. I'm not a big fan of actual lace, but I love painted lace patterns. This turned out awesome.
