Same basic process as before - you can read my detailed painting and stenciling instructions in this post. The stencil is from Cutting Edge Stencils. It's called the "Zinnia Grande Flower Stencil," we used the x-small and small size stencils for these chairs. The paint is once again from turtlefeathers.net and is called angelus paint (made specifically for leather). These chairs are not real leather but the paint works well on whatever the imitation may be! The colors we used were mustard (since I already had that on hand) and a custom "rust red" color (made by mixing cognac color with scarlet red). The paint colors didn't give me any problems - mistakes wiped up pretty easily (YEAH!).
After doing a few stenciled flowers my sister commented that she was pretty surprised by how easy the process really is - she said that after seeing my blog post when I did my barstools she thought it looked pretty complicated - but it's not! Really! For the smaller flower I used a sponge "spouncer" stenciling brush and for the large flower stencil I tried out a sponge roller - both ways worked great. Again the trick to stenciling is in using very little paint!
We even stenciled the backs!
And here they are in her Living Room! The colors and pattern tie in great!

*If your not sick of painted chairs - there will be another set of barstools done soon for my brother's house. A whole new stencil and color so I'm excited! *UPDATE* (click here to see how my brother's chairs turned out and all my painted leather barstool posts)
