Photo Booth Backdrop Stencils and Supplies:
Royal Stencil Creme Paints: Bright Gold, Copper Kettle, Pearl Oyster
Off White Eggshell Latex Paint
Painter’s tape, Paper Towels
Heavy Canvas, Paper, Dropcloth, or Fabric
Lizelly used some heavy Roclon canvas that we have here at the studio. This material is actually used to create light-blocking window treatments and can be found nationwide at fabric stores, like Jo-Ann's Fabrics. Otherwise, you could substitute dropcloth canvas, fabric curtains or heavy paper for your backdrop material. Roll the canvas with 2 coats of the latex paint color of your choice.
When stenciling a symmetrical allover stencil design in a featured area like this, it's always best to center the pattern so that it ends at the same place on both sides of the canvas. Determine the center vertical line of the backdrop and center one of the triangle elements there. Simply use ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape to keep the stencil in place.
Lizelly has a specific color scheme for her wedding decorations and wanted to create the perfect matching shade of gold. She combined our Royal Stencil Creme paints at a rate of 1 part Bright Gold + 1/8 part Copper Kettle + 1/8 part Pearl Oyster. The Stencil Creme colors can be easily customized in this way to create many glorious shades of shimmering metallic color. Stencil Creme paints are best used with one of our Signature Stencil Brushes, and our large 2" stencil brush holds a large amount of paint, allowing you to cover a larger area quickly.
Congratulations on your BIG day, Lizelly! We wish you a long and loving marriage filled with much laughter, and the Paris honeymoon of your dreams!!
