According to the website, Vecco is a painting technique for creating rugs and carpets inspired by you. With stencils, colorant sprays and sealants, you make custom designs that will tie any room together. With 13 colors (sage, golden yellow, rust, merlot, dark brown, dark blue, blue, hot pink, purple, orange, bright green, gray and dark gray) and 147 beautiful stencils to choose from, the design possibilities are almost endless. Kits are available, or you can buy items separately.
Vecco works best with nylon and polyester rugs in a cut pile, rather than a loop weave. The colorant does not adhere to olefin and polypropylene carpets, which has a continuous loop. A saxony cut pile, plush or velvet cut pile, or a friezé/shag rug is recommended. The site has a handy rug guide with pictures, in case you're not sure what to buy, or you can buy a rug from their site.
The website give step-by-step instructions for this DIY project, and the really cool thing is that mistakes need not worry you. The colorant vacuums right up until you apply the sealant, so nothing is set in stone until you love your rug.
Vecco stencils come in a variety of geometric, chevron, floral, animal and alphabet designs. They even carry stencils suitable for kids' rooms. Here are a just a few examples of the many stencils (and stencil combinations) you'll find.
