3 Techniques to Create Your Own Custom Wallpaper

Instead of using the standard format of wallpaper, it is possible to create your own custom paper that can add your unique style to a room. There are many ways to achieve a wallpaper effect by using custom methods, including digital printing and stenciling painted walls to simulate the look of wallpaper. It is possible to wallpaper an entire room using a custom wallpaper, or simply add a decorative accent to the room by creating the effect only on a wall or on a part of a wall. Anyway, it will add a lot of interest, style and personality to the room.

Digital printing
Creating your own digitally printed wallpaper can be a fun way to add a very personal style to a room. Digitally printed papers can be created using custom designs, scans of other types of artwork or natural materials such as the sheets or images that you can find on the Internet that you can print for personal use. When you print your own digital wallpaper, the best method is to use a large wide-format printer. Because most people do not own these types of advanced printers, it is often the best way to get the paper to write digital files to a print shop. Do some research to see if you can find a printing company that handles digitally printed wallpaper, as they will have the accessories that give the best results, such as rolled blank vinyl-covered paper. When printing on this type of material, printing companies usually use UV-curable or solvent-based inks.

Hand-stenciled and painted wallpaper
Creating custom designs with stencils is another way to create a custom wallpaper on your walls. Although you can stack patterns directly on painted walls, it is also possible to make stenciling on ordinary wallpaper for an interesting effect. One type of wallpaper that works especially well for custom stenciling is the variety that is specially designed to be painted. This type of paper often comes in interesting textured surfaces that can be further improved with creative stenciling effects to create a unique decorator color. In addition to using stencils, other painting techniques can be used to create a tapestry effect, for example applying the paint with rags, creamy paper, natural seaweed or other materials commonly used to create painted faux effects on the walls.

Paint by number of background patterns
An interesting and easy way to create your own custom designs on the wall, simulate the look of custom wallpapers or wallpapers, is to use an overhead projector to design, track and then paint a pattern, design or wall painting on the wall. This method can make it easy to create enough complicated patterns and artwork, kept in perfect proportions, created in whatever size you need. Simply trace the projected pattern lightly with a pencil, either directly on painted walls or on plainly colored wallpaper, to create a custom look that will compete with the wallpaper.
