We are in love with our Otomi stencil pattern! Inspired by traditional Mexican tribal textiles, this amazing ethnic pattern works great in a nursery, kids room, bedroom or on a headboard or rug. Check out the details of this lovely design, a joyful celebration of life and all its beautiful animals. Why use expensive wallpaper when you can stencil your walls? Reusable stencils save you money

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.
Stencil features an easy registration system,
use parts of the previously painted design to align the stencil, check
for level and continue. This gives
you a seamless "wallpaper" look. Don't worry about
super perfect alignment: in the end your eye will never ever notice the
discrepancy. We decorative pros "fudge" allover patterns

"fudging" while stenciling is very helpful and, in the end, not

easy it is to achieve perfectly level results without dealing with all

We find that it is not necessary to use spray adhesive with our stencils, but for this tribal pattern it is highly recommended. If you
want to minimize paint seepage or are using high
contrasting colors, adhesive is very helpful (Elmer's spray adhesive
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.
Clean-up tip: Spray the stencil with Simple Green to help to remove
Did you know you can stencil on fabric too? You
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 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! :) Texture medium will make the pain softer when it dries. 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
We offer this stencil design as a Stripe, which can be perfect not only for walls but also for table runners!
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.
