Honeycomb Stippler examples

HONEYCOMB

Honeycomb

  1. Apply a base coat … we chose dark blue and allow to dry.
  2. Load the Honeycomb Stippler with your second colour … we used light blue … apply the paint using a light random dabbing action.
  3. If you think you have been heavy handed with the second colour … simply let it dry and go back over the work with your base colour … that will tone it down.

Tip. Always load the pad sparingly … too much paint will give a heavy splattered finish and make sure you don’t have a build up of paint on the edges of the pad.

 

2 TONE HONEYCOMB

2 Tone Honeycomb

  1. Apply a base coat … we chose mustard … and allow to dry.
  2. Load the Honeycomb Stippler with your second colour … we used deep ochre … apply the paint with a light random dabbing action.
  3. When the second colour has dried … load the Honeycomb Stippler with you third colour … we used metallic gold and repeat step 2.

Tip. Always load the pad sparingly … too much paint will give a heavy splattered finish and make sure you don’t have a build up of paint on the edges of the pad.

 

FINE DISTRESSING

Fine Distressing

  1. Apply a base coat … we chose white … and allow to dry.
  2. Apply a second colour … we used burgandy … this you work with while it’s wet so on large areas do about 1 sq metre at a time.
  3. Use a very light random twisting action to take part of the top coat off and reveal the base colour underneath.

Tip. 1 person only must do the top coat so that you have a consistent finish.

 

BASKETWEAVE

Basketweave

  1. Apply a base coat … we chose white … and allow to dry.
  2. Apply a coat of your second colour … we used a light purple … this you work with while it’s wet … so on large areas do about 1 sq metre a time.
  3. Go back over the wet paint with the Honeycomb Stippler using a criss cross motion to achieve the basketweave finish.

Tip. The size of the pad will be the size of the weave and once you have done the first three weaves … keeping it straight is really easy.
