Inspiration

Pop Art Tray

by Jeanie Simpson

Painter in Residence Jeanie Simpson painted this tray as an ode to Pop Art using Chalk Paint® and the Hands Stencil by Annie Sloan.

Pop Art Hands Tray by Annie Sloan Painter in Residence Jeanie Simpson painted with Chalk Paint® and the Hands Stencil

Painter in Residence Jeanie Simpson took inspiration from the famous kaleidoscope pattern-repeats by Andy Warhol when designing this colourful tray, which she picked up from a charity shop for NZ$5.

Jeanie mixed Chalk Paint® in Napoleonic Blue and Graphite together to create a navy blue colour for the base of the tray, and used a bright palette of Chalk Paint® colours for the design.

Jeanie divided the base of the tray into nine rectangles and painted each a different colour. Using a Stencil Brush she applied the Hands Stencil – loosely painting the design inside each of the rectangles. Once dry, she painted over her original stencil, using a different colour and placing the stencil slightly off centre to create a shadow of the colour below.

The tray was finished with two coats of lacquer for a harder-wearing finish.
