stencil Orient. This allover stencil was inspired by traditional
Japanese kimono patterns of Edo period. Perfect for your next DIY wall
painting project! This beautiful design will look stunning stenciled on your accent wall.
This stencil comes with an additional FREE Top Edge stencil: the upper part of the design cut as a smaller separate stencil. It makes it easy to fill the gaps close to the ceiling line. To see how to use Top part stencils, click here for Illustrated instructions: Using Top Edge Stencils
We also included a FREE Small Single stencil, just to help you to get into the tighter places around moldings, light switches, tight corners etc.
This is a "filler" stencil, meaning you're filling in the pattern as opposed to outlining it. Keep this in mind when choosing your base coat color. Refer to Actual stencil picture (the last black and white picture) to see where the paint goes.

on rough or textured walls may contribute to increased paint bleed. For
more information on stenciling on textured walls, see our F.A.Q. section.
Stencil features an easy registration system,
use rows of the previously painted design to align the stencil, check
for level and continue. This gives
you a seamless "wallpaper" look. Don't worry about
super perfect alignment: in the end your eye will never ever notice the
discrepancy. We decorative pros "fudge" damasks and allover patterns

"fudging" while stenciling is very helpful and, in the end, not
While prior stenciling experience is a plus for allover patterns, even beginner stencilers get great
results! This design is recommended for feature/accent wall or entire room, and also
works for furniture and fabric embellishment.
Although usually it is not necessary to use spray adhesive with
our stencils, for this crisp geometric pattern it is recommended. If you
want to minimize paint seepage or are using high
contrasting colors, adhesive is very helpful (Elmer's spray adhesive
be the best). Make sure you shake the can well and lightly mist (not
drench) the stencil, and let it dry for a moment before positioning it
on the wall. This step will prevent the adhesive residue transferring
to the wall. You'll need to re-mist the stencil after a few repeats.
Clean-up tip: Spray the stencil with Simple Green to help to remove
adhesive residue. About seepage and imperfections:
Even with a proper loaded roller and correct technique you might get
some minor paint seepage here and there. In most cases it's not
noticeable, especially from a couple of feet away and it can be easily
touched up with a small brush. Don't forget that you're creating a
"hand-painted wall finish". A few imperfections and some paint seepage
here and there are natural and inevitable for this type of work. To
avoid seepage, use spray adhesive and less paint on your roller and
Did you know you can stencil your own fabric and use it for curtains,
tablecloths, pillows, etc.? When stenciling on fabric, stencil adhesive is very helpful. 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
