After spending many years working as a marketing director for a decorative concrete company, Rachel Bruce branched off and start her own business in 2009, designing and selling custom stencils to contractors. Her primary motivation for becoming one of the presenters was to show how easy it is to use stencils to create multicolored designs.
Bruce designed a three-dimensional multicolored graphic with a more corporate than residential feel. Before applying the stencils, she diamond-polished her slab to an 800-grit finish and precut four layers of stencils consisting of several panels. Including registration marks allowed her to accurately position and apply each stencil layer. She sprayed solvent-based dyes to apply colors and gradients.
