Our great friends at DecoArt , Princeton Brushes, and inspired by Willow Wolfe are joining with us this week to show you what you can do with stamps and acrylic paint! You’ll be amazed how these simple craft items make amazing things!
Hi there! I hope your weekend was fantastic! I wanted to share this cute little step stool I painted as part as a fun collaboration with Stampendous rubber stamps and DecoArt paint. I honestly never thought of using rubber stamps with paint as a way to decorate furniture, but it really works!
It was a super easy craft that really updated this old step stool that the girls use in the bathroom. I painted it with three coats of DecoArt’s Chalky Finish paint in Carbon. (I’m super in love with the smooth finish of the paint, and the low VOC makes it so I can paint inside the house with no problem.)
I chose the Square Illusion stamp from Stampendous, and stamped it on with the Americana Gloss Enamels in White.
The best way I found to get the paint on to the stamp was to dab it with a little round foam painter used for stencils, but a makeup sponge would work great as well.
I practiced a lot on paper, just to make sure I get the paint amount and pressure right. But I learned that stamping with paint is not an exact science and not every stamp is even. But I like it! Once it was dry I finished up with a coat of varnish. I love how it turned out!
