Another Bekvam





This was done earlier, now, Elena does her version of the Bekvam.

“The first one was simply painted, partly with stencil and partly free hand,then coated with varnish.

The second one was a bit more complicated, I first started …


with Ikea stencil but it didn’t work out too well, so I preferred covering it entirely with paper towels glued on it with “vernis-colle” (acrylic glue, becoming transparent when it dries, commonly used in the paper towel technique).

As a finishing touch, I added some anti-slip band on the steps.”

    Very, very pretty!

    Absolutely magnificent! I’d love to know what a “paper towel” is in this context. In American English, it’s a neutral-colored disposable paper product for wiping up spills — nothing like the gorgeous, vibrant material used on this stool.

    I’d like to know in more detail too about the “paper towels” (art paper? wallpaper?) and the process. It looks lovely.

    I think in english speaking countries it’s called ‘napkin decoupage’. You take the coloured layer of a napkin and glue it onto something. :)

    Elena, tu es une véritable artiste, quelle belle idée. Michelle

    Indeed, it’s exactly what Sasy says. You can also use Rice paper, Decopatch or any similar very thin paper. Here you can find a nice tutorial:
