Morning Glory stencil Border. This lovely floral design will look
stunning as a simple border, or on your accent wall or even done as an
allover vertical stripe pattern. Easy registration system, just use
parts of the design to align the stencil.
Try this stencil with our new Clip-on Stencil Level
, and discover how
easy it is to achieve perfectly level results without dealing with all
those bulky heavy bubble levels and annoying laser levels.
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.
textured walls? No problem! If your walls have a light/medium texture,
they are quite suitable for stenciling. With textured wall it is better
to use a stencil brush. It's especially important that you put very
little paint on your brush, always off-load it on a paper towel, and
use rubbing/dabbing motion while stenciling. Using a spray adhesive
also helps a lot to prevent any seepage of paint under the stencils.
But again, you'll not get any seepage with textured walls if you use
very little paint on your brush. If you try using a foam roller,
definitely use spray adhesive, ( we love Elmer's) use very little paint
and don't press hard on the roller to avoid seepage.
stenciling on fabric, stencil adhesive as a must. 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 a long time.
