Key cabinet
Chalk paint – French Linen and Old White
Mesh Stencil
Baby powder
Silicon Moulding Mat
Difference Relief Moulding Texture Paste
Wood glue
Stamp pad

Silicon Mould Relief

Dust silicon mould well with baby powder. This is important because it is a releasing agent for the mould to be removed easily.
Pour Difference into the mould and ensure that the image is filled completely. Use the scraper to even out the paste and set aside to dry.
When dry apply a second coat and allow to dry again.
When dry remove from mould carefully and cut out the elements required for the cabinet and the rubber stamp.
Paint the cabinet with French Linen chalk paint and allow to dry.
Glue the relief mould onto the top of the cabinet by spreading a thin coat of wood glue directly onto the cabinet.
Press the relief firmly into the glue and set aside to dry.
Paint the entire cabinet with Old White chalk paint. When dry sand lightly to distress the cabinet.


Place the mesh stencil along the bottom of the cabinet. Spread paint along the top of the stencil.
Use a credit card to pull the paint towards the bottom of the cabinet. Lift the stencil carefully.


Cut a piece of foam the size of the stamp you want to make.  Paint a thin coat of wood glue on the top surface of the foam and press the relief onto the glue. Allow to dry.
When the glue has dried ink the stamp with an ink pad and stamp the sides of the cabinet.
Wax the entire cabinet and buff to a sheen.
