A great way to break up a bright color or add wow to a boring wall is with stamps. Stamps can be customizing if desired. You can find stamps in most paint stores or online.
Here is a great example of using stamps. In a kids bedroom, I painted the wall electric blue. Electric blue is a deep blue with a wow. At the top of the wall I put a Mickey Mouse border. The border had lots of reds in it. I got different Mickey Mouse stamps. All of the wall was stamped in red Mickey Mouse Stamps. The red calmed the blue down and tied the border with the rest of the room.
Items Needed:Stamp of your Choice Paint Brush Paint Paint Pan
Pour enough paint in the paint pan to cover the base of the paint pan. Not too deep as we want to dip the stamp into the paint. Add about an inch of paint for small stamps. Add about two inches of paint for large stamps.
Dip the stamp into the paint pan. Only dip the bottom half of the stamp, not the part that you hold on to.
Take the paint brush and lightly brush off the excess paint. Removing the excess paint will prevent drips.
Firmly press the stamp for about thirty seconds on the wall where you want the stamp to be. Remove the stamp evenly away from the wall.
You can practice on a old piece of wood before applying to your finish wall. Stamps become much easier to use after a little bit of practice.
