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:
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:
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 your own fabric
and use it for curtains,
tablecloths, pillows, etc.? When stenciling on fabric, stencil adhesive
is very helpful. First, tape your ironed fabric to the surface so it
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 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
About seepage and imperfections: Even
with a proper loaded roller and correct technique you might get some
minor paint seepage here and there. In most cases it's not noticeable,
especially from a couple of feet away and it can be easily touched up
with a small brush. Don't forget that you're creating a "hand-painted
wall finish". A few imperfections and some paint seepage here and there
are natural and inevitable for this type of work. To avoid seepage, use
spray adhesive and less paint on your roller and brush.
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.
