We had a bunch of 12″； x 12″； square canvases laying around the office. We decided to put them to good use and craft custom wall art using our Radiance Mandala stencil.
For our visual fanspersonalized father's day gifts， you’；re going to love this video tutorial. ？We were live on Hometalk’；s facebook sharing how to complete this project. ？In this detailed how-to video， we show fans how easy it is to stencil a canvas using a Radiance Mandala.
Let’；s walk through the steps for completing this easy stencil project. The first thing Greg did was tape the four canvases together. then he flipped them over for painting.
Next he painted the canvas using a technique called colorwashing. It’；s a faux finishing technique where you blend to paint that are wet. ？For this part of the project， Greg used Benjamin Moore’；s Ben paint in Wythe Blue and After Midnight.
He painted the lighter color first and started in the center of the canvas. Then he worked the darker blue hue in around the edges. Using a small chip brush， Greg worked the two wet paint colors into each other until they were blended.
Once he was happy with how the background was painted， he was ready to start stenciling. For this particular project， Greg chose the Radiance Mandala Pattern.？？This pattern is so pretty that you can almost ？feel the energy coming from this radiant mandala stencil pattern.
Greg sprayed the back of the stencil with spray adhesive.
He carefully placed the stencil in the center of the canvas and patted it down. ？The spray adhesive will help hold it in place. Then he began painting the Mandala？design in a metallic gold using a stencil brush.
If you are recreating this project at home， please make sure you brush off any excess paint onto a piece of paper towel. Too much paint will cause the design to bleed.
Greg made sure he covered the entire design with paint before he removed the stencil from the canvas.
Then he stepped back to admire his beautiful work. Are you ready to see how it all turned out？？ Here is Greg’；s stenciled canvas artwork.
This pretty pattern and pop of color are the perfect way to add interest to blank walls.
