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, 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 costs way less too! :) Let the
stenciled image dry completely, 24 hours is best, then heat-set it by
ironing the fabric for about 20 seconds (more or less) on a LOW setting
through the piece of cloth. Heat-setting will cure the paint and
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
The stencil is 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 to 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.
