wall stencil creates a stunning accent on an otherwise
plain wall above the sofa or table, or above the bed or pretty much any
wall space that needs some interest. Try this stencil for your next
home decorative project. Trendy and sophisticated, these bold
refreshingly modern wall art stencils will instantly bring color and
pattern to a wall.Be creative:
overlap the design, use different colors, create your own
allover damask stencil pattern, add shading - possibilities are
endless. You can stencil over simple latex paint, plaster, faux
finish background or even wallpaper if it is in decent condition.
We find that it is not necessary to use spray adhesive with our stencils
but if you want very crisp edges, please use it (Elmer's spray adhesive
to be the best). The trick with stenciling is to take care not to
over-load your roller or brush with
paint and not to press hard on a roller while stenciling. I personally
prefer just to use blue painter's tape to secure the stencil, but for
beginners I would suggest using spray adhesive to make sure you get
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 large stencil brush. Stenciling takes longer with a brush of course. 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. Roller will work only on a very light textured surface.
is so easy to use
, virtually anyone can do it.
registration marks are necessary! Simply tape the stencil to the wall using
BLUE painter's tape, then load your dense foam roller
with the paint of your
choice (latex or acrylic). Get rid of excess paint by rolling the foam
roller over a folded paper towel. Then, just roll it over the stencil
applying medium pressure for an instant fabulous result! Don't press on
the roller too hard otherwise you might get some bleed. Transform your
room with beautiful damask here and there!Want to learn the easiest stenciling technique?
