Create this playful, modern overlapping stencil design using Chalk Paint® and stencils by Annie Sloan from The Colourist Issue 2.

Overlapping Stencilled Chest from The Colourist Issue 2 painted with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in Chicago Grey, Burgundy, Tilton and Old White

Aishi Copley, designer at Annie Sloan, painted this free-form overlapping design in an easy to achieve, effective folk style. Her top tip is to try out the stencils on a large sheet of paper before committing to stencilling on your chosen piece of furniture.

This stencil comes free with The Colourist Issue 2, but can be created with any stencil design.

Overlapping Stencilled Chest from The Colourist Issue 2 painted with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan in Chicago Grey, Burgundy, Tilton and Old White step 1 and 2

First paint your furniture in Chalk Paint® in Chicago Grey. Whilst it dries, cut out your free Bird and Leaf Stencils from The Colourist Issue 2. Ensure the Chicago Grey is completely dry before taping the stencil into place with masking tape. Using a roller, apply Chalk Paint® in Tilton, Burgundy or Old White in a back and forth motion. When stencilling, less is more. Using too much Chalk Paint® will lead to bleed through. It’s best to apply a couple of thin coats rather than one thick one.

Repeat taping and painting the stencil until you’ve achieved a pattern you’re happy with. To create a shadow effect, tape the stencil so it’s slightly overlapping the first leaf, and apply a contrasting colour of Chalk Paint®. As always: once the piece is completely dry, apply a coat of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax all over using a lint free cloth or Wax Chalk Paint® Brush.

For longer usage on the stencil, apply Chalk Paint® Lacquer to it before use to strengthen the stencil and ensure longevity. For more information, tips and tricks, pick up a copy of The Colourist Issue 2.
