Modello Designs™ Revolutionizing the Art and the Business of Decorative Painting
Modello Designs, the original Decorative Masking Pattern™, was first introduced in the Fall of 2003. Since that time, Modello® patterns have succeeded in revolutionizing the application of surface decoration to walls, floors, ceilings, wood, furniture, glass, tile and concrete.
In five short years, the word Modello has become synonymous with the means and the method of transferring decorative designs onto a surface with aid of a one-time-use, adhesive-backed pattern. Literally thousands of decorative painting and decorative concrete contractors, interior design professionals and architectural specifiers have learned to rely on our Modello® patterns when they want to apply high quality, custom designs to their projects.
The original Modello® concept is brilliantly simple: an ornamental library of 1000’s of decorative patterns that can be easily custom-sized and cut to order from adhesive vinyl materials. The brainchild of Modello Designs President and Creative Director, Melanie Royals, the Modello® concept was created to answer a growing need in the field of surface decoration for sophisticated, custom patterns that could be produced in scales both small and grand, depending on specific project needs.

Modello patterns have become the professional’s “medium of choice” for surface decoration for many reasons.
Modello® patterns can be utilized with mediums and techniques as varied as gilding and glazes, fine plasters and concrete micro toppings, paint and sandblasting, wood stains and waxes, chemical etching and vinyl applique.
Modellos are the medium
One-time-use decorative masking patterns that are custom-sized and cut to order from your choice of adhesive materials.
Modellos are the method
The adhesive quality of the material opens up a whole new world of application techniques, including the ability to work with the design in a positive or negative manner.
Modellos offer new options
When combined with decorative painting, gilding, etching, and textural mediums, the artistic possibilities are unlimited.
As the awareness of the value and beauty of decorative painting broadens and practice of decorative painting becomes more highly developed, the need grows for more sophisticated, unique and customizable options. Modello is here to both enhance that need and to fill it.
Decorative artists and designers now have a cost-effective means of utilizing completely custom art-with designs, patterns and techniques that have previously been unexplored and unavailable.
