To see how easy it is to stencil, take a look at our Illustrated STENCILING INSTRUCTIONS on our site:
Don't forget the TOOLS for your stenciling project! This Stencil Essentials kit contains a foam roller, a brush and a stencil level AND it saves you 10%!
Also, you can watch our step-by-step stenciling VIDEOS on YouTube.
This stencil is so easy to use, virtually anyone can do it. Simply tape it to the wall using BLUE painter's tape, then load your dense foam roller with a paint of your choice (latex or acrylic). Offload the excess paint on a folded paper towel, make sure there is no excess paint. Then, just roll over the stencil applying light to medium pressure for an instant fabulous result! Don't press on the roller too hard otherwise you might get some bleed. Use a separate roller for each color.
If you prefer shaded multi-color look, use stencil brushes ( one per each color) instead of a roller to create beautiful soft shading.
Stencil is reusable and good for many repeats. We find that there is no need to clean the stencil between uses if you let the paint dry completely on the stencil before your next use. We clean our stencils only when they accumulate a lot of paint after many, many uses and get too heavy to be taped to the wall. To clean the stencil, simply lay it on a flat surface (like a large baking tray) and lightly scrub with a stiff-bristled dish washing brush under running water.
You can stencil with acrylic or latex paint, stencil creams, fabric paint or plaster of your choice. You can trowel the plaster through the stencil to achieve stunning dimensional effect. We recommend using stencil spray adhesive when working with large stencils, or when using very contrasting colors. However it is not necessary, we just use blue tape.
Got textured walls? No problem! If your walls have a light/medium texture, they are quite suitable for stenciling. With textured wall it is better to use a stencil brush. It’s especially important that you put very little paint on your brush, always off-load it on a paper towel, and use rubbing/dabbing motion while stenciling. Using a spray adhesive also helps a lot to prevent any seepage of paint under the stencils. But again, you'll not get any seepage with textured walls if you use very little paint on your brush. If you try using a foam roller, definitely use spray adhesive, ( we love Elmer’s) use very little paint and don't press hard on the roller to avoid seepage.
When stenciling on fabric, stencil adhesive is a must. First, tape your ironed fabric to the surface so it doesn't move around while you stencil. Use stencil brushes or roller, and add some textile medium ( sold in craft stores) to your acrylic paint. You can also get a special fabric paint, but, frankly, good craft acrylics with a dollop of textile medium work just as well, and cost way less too! :) Let the stenciled image dry completely, 24 hours is best, then heat-set it by ironing the fabric for about 20 sec. ( more or less) on a LOW setting through the piece of cloth. Heat-setting will cure the paint and will prevent it from being washed off in the washing machine. Always experiment with a sample of your fabric first to ensure good results. I've stenciled on silk, cotton, linen and even sheer fabrics with great results. It's always better if your fabric doesn't have too much texture.
The stencil is made out of durable 12 mil clear plastic stencil material. This material is strong but flexible, reusable and easy to clean. We love it so much more than standard 5-8 mil Mylar! It's not brittle, user friendly and just so easy to work with, you'll love the way it "hugs" the wall surface! In our many years of professional stenciling this material has proven to be far superior than any other stencil material we used. Our customers love it too, and we are sure that you'll notice the difference. Our stencils will last a long time and are a pleasure to use.
