Default Reverse/Negative space Stenciled Ceiling

Hi! This ceiling was recently completed using paint to fill in the negative space. Had I cut the stencil the opposite way,it probably would have bled a lot due to the fact that metallic paint seems to always need three layers.

Start: I based out the ceiling in Ben Moore OC 52 and then brushed on three layers of water based glaze with a crap ton of Super Sparkle Mica Powder.

We snapped lines and I applied about 100 'X's' and cross pieces that I hand cut from mylar. That all got sprayed with spray mount.i tried to use frisket paper,which is self adhesive and it fell off the ceiling.

I think you can see some of the undone stencil up there.

Once every piece of mylar was up, I had five hot dog rollers with different colors and randomly rolled it out. The rollers need to be pretty dried out,not dripping with paint.

Voila!

The walls get a Lusterstone troweled on finish. I'll post more pics in a couple days.

Beautifully done. How long did it take you in total. And how long just to get the lines and stencil up?

I spent 3 hrs cutting the frisked paper that didn't work. Two hrs to re- cut in Mylar. 1 hr to measure out the ceiling, mostly because I kept making mistakes. 15 mins. for two of us to snap the lines. I spent 9am to 4:30 placing Mylar and rolling. No lunch . I did end up short on the Mylar and had to reposition about 25 pieces. So I would say 3 hrs placing the stencil and 4.5 rolling. So total about 14 hrs. I only charged them $1,200, should have been more like 1,500. But supplies were about $115.

Thanks, we copied it from a rug. But it's a fairly common pattern on the other side of the world.

I don't even feel worthy enough to comment. I've never felt more like a glorified janitor than I do now. Thanks.

OH stop! You know, while I was painting trim today, I was mortified seeing up close how poorly I prepped it. Sanded areas not quite flat, little fuzzy crap everywhere. I don't have the patience to make things look as good as you all do. I can get away with things being a bit off, being 'a hand crafted finish'. I'm never 100% on.
