Wait! Before you run away thinking you know how this all ends, let me tell you that there is a nice little surprise at the end.
Let's recap. First I painted the fabric binding of this seagrass rug a cobalt blue.
Next I planned to use this stencil for the body of the rug in pink.
I mixed two pinks for a light, but not too light pink and added fabric medium for flexibility after drying.
I then sprayed the stencil with adhesive and let it dry for a couple of minutes until tacky as the directions stated. I even thought to myself as the stencil did not seem to stick at all, "Let the swearing begin!"
What the $#%& !!!!?
This looks like pink puppy paw prints.
This is where I stopped. The stencil not adhering made paint squish under it and the design did not work on the highly textured rug.
I was prepared with a Plan B.
Several people seemed to really want me to paint a rug like one of my paintings and I could not envision this
on a rug.
Instead, I painted a pared down version of this
in different colors.
Behold, plan B.
It is an 18 x 24 mat so not too big but if you would like to have it, I am giving it away.
