We recommend using any allover stencil with our Clip-on Stencil Level,
(sold separately). Discover how easy it is to achieve perfectly level
results without dealing with all those bulky heavy bubble levels and
expensive laser levels. We cannot recommend the Level enough, it's a
real time-saver and is so handy!
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.
Most of our stencils do
not require the use of spray adhesive, however this Herringbone wall
pattern can definitely benefit from it. 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. Clean-up tip: Spray the
stencil with Simple Green to help to remove adhesive residue. Please remember that it's usually not possible to remove all of the glue residue from the stencil.
Did you know you can stencil your own fabric
and use it for curtains, tablecloths, pillows, etc.? When stenciling on
fabric, please use stencil adhesive to ensure good results. First, tape
your ironed fabric to the surface so it doesn't move around while you
stencil. You'll get better results with stencil brushes, but sometimes
roller can work too, depending on your fabric. Add some textile medium (
sold in craft stores) to your acrylic paint. You can also get a
specially formulated fabric paint, but, frankly, good craft acrylic
paint with a dollop of textile medium mixed in works just as well, and
costs way less! :) Let the stenciled image dry completely, 24 hours is
best, then heat-set it by ironing the fabric for about 20-30 seconds 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. We have stenciled on silk, cotton, linen and even sheer fabrics
with great results. It's always better if your fabric doesn't have too
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 in
quality 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.
