"GROTTESCA"

                                   Panels I made yesterday. These are old world stencils and techniques used in Europe but have become very popular here in the States. They are applied to cabinets or walls. I did a ceiling with this one with a few other stencils added . It can give quite a striking ambiance to any room. But this one in particular "grottesca" is hand painted on top of the stencil work and glazed to give it this look. 



                                                 23 x 19  Acrylic, glaze, clear plaster, sand

Dominique, these so beautiful. Did you apply them to the ceiling after you painted them?

Vern, actually the one I did on the ceiling was done directly on it. It was a little simpler not so many colors, but it took a long time also. Thanks for stopping by.
I'm almost finished with the DSFDF piece

Wow... I didn't see this the other day when I came to visit your DSFDF piece. *doh*!

I love how you work with vintage stencils because it gives you a connection to the past masters. I looked at the enlarged image and was really impressed. Never been but I would bet it looks exactly like an Italiano maestoso soffitto! [don't I sound like I know what I'm talking about? I love Google translate] HUGS!

hello Dominique,
I love this stencil work; how beautiful. I just went to your website and took a look at everything; how multi-talented you are. By the way, your Jefferson Memorial is fantastic, good to have fun.
Take care.
