when done in multiple colors using stencil brushes. Easy pattern

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
Although most of our stencils do not require the use of spray adhesive,
it can be useful for beginners to help minimize paint seepage (Elmer's
spray adhesive seems to be the best). Adhesive is especially useful if
your walls have a texture to them. 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. Note: you will still need to hold the
stencil in place with a few pieces of blue painters tape! Adhesive by
itself is not enough to hold the stencil on the wall. Clean-up tip: Spray the stencil with Simple Green to help to remove adhesive residue. Please remember that it's usually not possible to remove all of the glue residue from the stencil.
are 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. 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.
