I have reminisced on my fascination with foxes recently, but what you don’t know is that I took a step further. Quite a few steps, actually! Jean’s room has had a few make-overs in the last couple of years, but the last one left his room entirely white. I saw a fantastic image with a black graphic printed onto a stark wall, and decided that was just the thing to do.
I designed a very simple triangular stamp, representing a foxes head.
I used a sponge roller to apply the paint and tested the pattern on paper and plaster first – most stamps are made to be used with ink so when using paint, which is a much thicker medium, you might get a different effect.
Stamping in a random fashion makes things a bit easier by giving you room for error and results in a completely unique pattern. I decided to work with a basic more-or-less spacing of about 15cm to give the pattern some rythm. The prints are all upright, with roughly every 7th one upside down – just for fun!
The result is a striking graphic pattern that adds interest and depth to the room. The whole wall took me about 30 minutes to do so it really was minimal effort for maximum effect. And because it’s just paint, it’s really easy to remove again by just painting over it!
You can order our Foxy Fox stamp from us here. Or if you want to try something different, have a stamp made in the shape of your choice and go wild!
