The Extraordinary Stenciled Ceilings of Gina Wolfrum

Our Stencil Star this month is the incredible Gina Wolfrum of Finishes by Gina whose specialty is incredible ceiling design and creation. Using both Modello® Designs and Royal Design Studio stencils, she frequently creates a glam mix of pattern and color for all her sophisticated surfaces such as stenciled ceilings.

MEET STENCIL STAR GINA WOLFRUM. Finishes by Gina is a decorative art studio that specializes in custom and original wall finishes, hand-troweled plasters, hand-painted furniture, commissioned fine art and murals. Established in 1998, the studio’s specialty has developed into ceiling design and creation. Gina Wolfrum’s work has been recognized on the cover of two industry journals as well as numerous other magazines, newspapers and books. While Wolfrum’s formal education is in business management and finance, she has studied at studios throughout the states and continues to develop and grow with the current industry trends in interior design both commercially and residentially.

Let’s take a look at some of Gina’s beautiful stencil projects and learn more about her dream project, working style and her favorite materials to work with through a delightful tête-à-tête with the artist herself.

What would be your ‘dream’ stencil project?

Gina Wolfrum: My dream stencil project is a (somewhat) high, smooth ceiling with no smoke detectors, speakers, or can lights to work around. A stunning chandelier that’s been centered exactly where it should be with the ability to be lowered by an electric hoist. Scaffolding platforms that mimic a dance floor, a sturdy interior hydraulic lift, carte blanche freedom relative to design and color and several gifted artists with which to collaborate our specialties. You did say dream project. I’ve come close to having all of those elements in one project a few times!

Please share with us your top stenciling tip:

Gina Wolfrum: I have a couple!  At the end of the day, before we pack up to go home… I put the used Mylar stencils in a big garbage bag, one at a time, and spray both sides with Krud Kutter. I stack subsequent stencils on top of each other within the bag, spraying each layer. This flat bag of stencils can sit overnight in the studio and ‘cook’. In the morning I simply hose off the debris from the previous day. The product and adhesives just melt away.

Unless absolutely necessary, I try not to use adhesives. Less clean up, better for the environment, healthier for my lungs, no overspray at the job site, less expensive and better for the stencils.

My last tip is to always seal the Modello® Designs stencil with a clear coat before application of paint, plaster, foil, etc. The clear coat not only seals your edges, it creates a very non-porous surface for your product. This is especially helpful when working with Wunda size and leaf or foils. Crisp edges are pretty edges!

Stenciled Ceiling by Gina Wolfrum using Remi Carpets and Panels by Modello Designs | Paint + PatternEven in a neutral color scheme, a stenciled ceiling can add just the right finishing touch to an understated, elegant space. Gina used the Remy Carpets & Ceiling Panels Stencil from Modello® Designs for this project.

Grand Entry with Custom Modello Stencil on Ceiling and Treatments by Gina Wolfrum using Modello Designs | Paint + PatternA customized Chateau Carpets & Ceiling Panels Stencil from Modello Designs creates a spectacular ceiling while related stencil patterns enhance the window treatments.

What are your favorite surfaces to work on and design for?

Gina Wolfrum: As you might notice, I like to work on the ceilings. Ceilings also lend themselves to more creativity due to the typically uninterrupted expanse of surface area. What better way to pull a room together than a ceiling design that incorporates classic elements from the architectural detail and furnishings within the room. It’s the finishing touch that completes the overall design of the space.

The toll it takes on my neck and shoulders  doesn’t seem to matter when I look at the finished project! There’s a little part of me thinking that maybe my stenciled and hand-painted ceilings will be appreciated longer than other design elements. I think of them as an art installation. Ceilings get less use and thereby last longer, too. I’ve always enjoyed designing for long-term appeal rather than right-now appeal.

Isn’t long-term appeal something that all of us strive for when it comes to decorating walls and ceilings? Gina creates an exclusive design for each of her clients and never repeats them! Her awe-inspiring portfolio with unique surface treatments can be found on her website finishesbygina.com. We highly recommend you to check it out, especially if you are expecting a cool renovation project in the near future.

We hope you enjoyed this little feature on our Stencil Star of the month, Gina Wolfrum as much as we did! Are you working on any stencil projects of your own? If so, be sure to share it with us on Royal Design Studio’s Facebook Page or email your pictures at project@royaldesignstudio.com
