This stencil pattern comes with an additional FREE
Top edge stencil: the upper part of the design cut as a smaller separate stencil.
It makes it easy to fill the gaps close to the ceiling line after your main pattern is stenciled.
For alignment please refer to the pics. Stencil aligns easily vertically and horizontally for a seamless wallpaper effect by slightly overlapping and locking in with previously painted parts. No need to wait for the paint to dry between repeats, if you're stenciling with flat paint over flat background (which we recommend), the paint dries very quickly between repeats and no smudging should occur.
Most of our stencils
do not require the use of spray adhesive
, and this particular pattern is very forgiving. The possible paint bleed is barely noticeable with this pattern. But if you want to minimize paint seepage or are using high contrasting colors, spray adhesive is very helpful (Elmer's spray adhesive seems to be the best). 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.
Stenciling on rough or textured walls may contribute to increased paint bleed. For more information on stenciling on textured walls, see our F.A.Q. section.Want to learn how to use an interlocking allover stencil pattern?
