Using Top Edge stencil for Damask/Allover stencils

Now that we finished the main walls with our damask stencil, it’s time to fill those gaps in the pattern at the ceiling line. We often use a special top part stencil designed just for that. You can fill those gaps with your large stencil too, but it’s kind of cumbersome, you have to bring the stencil all the way up and it tends to flop down on top of you.  No big deal, but it is definitely much easier if you use a separate smaller top part stencil. Professionals prefer to use it too, often we would even sacrifice the large stencil and cut it into smaller parts to fill these gaps.

It’s as simple as aligning the top edge stencil, using parts of the design, taping it in place,

And rolling it just like we did before with a large stencil. Roll it right into the crease.

Remove the Top edge stencil… The edge looks nice! And I didn’t even use a stencil brush, just the roller. Note that the freshly stenciled image is lighter than the previously stenciled damask. It’s because all water-based paints dry a bit darker.

Continue stenciling along the ceiling line…

Until all gaps are filled!

I will dedicate a special detailed tutorial for corners when  you wrap entire room in damask, so stay tuned!
