Since it's a reusable sturdy stencil, and not a vinyl wall decal,
can reuse it many, many times and create your own cool paint color
combos! You'll also get the satisfaction of knowing that you've created
your own hand-painted wall art instead of just applying wall stickers
or wallpaper. Stencils are not difficult to use and don't require
artistic ability. Stencils are more economical than wallpaper and way
classier than decals. Even beginners get fabulous results! Just follow
our illustrated instructions (included with every purchase).
We find that it is not necessary to use spray adhesive with our stencils
. However, if you want very crisp edges or are using high contrasting
colors, please use it (Elmer's spray adhesive seems to be the best). I
personally prefer just to attach pieces of blue painter's tape to
secure the stencil, but for beginners it may be helpful to mist a
stencil with spray adhesive just to make sure you get great results.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, not 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
All of our stencils are made of thick, sturdy but
flexible 12 mil clear plastic
, reusable, easy to clean and
stenciler-friendly! In our 20+ years of professional stenciling this
material has proven to be far superior than any other material we used,
including the industry standard 8 mil mylar.
We are certain you'll
notice the difference and will love working with it, just like all the
folks who already bought our stencils.
Our stencils are made to last and with proper care and storage will serve you for long time.
