Although our stencils
do not require the use of spray adhesive
, this pattern could benefit from it to help minimize paint seepage, especially if your walls have a slight texture to them. (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. Please note that once you've used spray adhesive on your stencil, it will never really come off completely. That is why we personally prefer not to use adhesive, and instead use less paint on your roller or stencil brush.Did you know you can stencil on fabric?
can create custom stenciled curtains, pillows and table cloths with our
stencils! 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 dense foam 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
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.
