Wanted Poster Photo Frame

Posted by DecoArt on Apr 25th 2016

Here's a photo frame he'll want in his room, created with Americana Decor® Chalky Finish and Urban Ink Stencils.


    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • 2" chip brush
    • #2 round brush
    • 3/4" flat brush
    • star stencil
    • cosmetic foam wedge
    • 12" square wooden frame



    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Use a 3/4" flat brush and Legacy to basecoat the frame.
    2. Load the chip brush tips with Serene. Wipe on a paper towel to remove excess paint. Gently drag the brush across the frame in one direction. Repeat until you are satisfied with results.
    3. Position the letters for "Wanted" from the Urban Ink Outlaw Stencil at the top of the frame beginning with the "W". Load the small flat side of a cosmetic sponge with Serene. Pounce the loaded sponge on the palette or plastic plate a few times to push the paint up into the sponge. Gently tap the paint into the stencil opening. Position and stencil the remaining "Wanted" letters.
    4. Position the stencil numbers as desired. Use a cosmetic sponge and Rouge to stencil on the numbers.
    5. Use the letter "S" and Serene for a dollar sign. Use a #2 round brush to paint vertical lines on "S".
    6. Use any star stencil or draw your own. Use a #2 round brush and Inheritance to paint a star on each side of the numbers.
