Fun Polka Dot
stencil pattern for easy wall decor. Perfect for
nurseries, kids rooms and baths. Great stenciled as an allover pattern
or just one focal wall.
Since it's a reusable sturdy stencil
, and not a vinyl wall decal, you
can reuse it many, many times and create your own cool paint color
combos! If you love the look of trendy vinyl wall decals but dislike
the idea of putting glossy vinyl stickers on your walls, these wall
stencils are just what you've been looking for. Not only are they
re-usable, but they give you the flexibility of using any paint color
you want. You'll also get the satisfaction of knowing that you've
created your own hand-painted wall art instead of just applying a wall
sticker. Stencils are very easy to apply and don't require artistic
ability. Stencils are more economical than wallpaper and way classier

recommended for allover patterns, even beginner stencilers get great

We also included a FREE

Stencil features an easy registration system
just use rows of the design to align the stencil. Don't worry about
super perfect alignment: in the end your eye will never ever notice if
it's a little bit off. We decorative pros "fudge" allover patterns all
the time! The walls in most houses are often not straight, so some
"fudging" while stenciling helps a lot.
Usually it is not necessary to use spray adhesive with
However, if you want very crisp edges or are using high contrasting
colors, please use it (Elmer's spray adhesive seems to be the best). I
personally prefer just to attach pieces of blue painter's tape to
secure the stencil, but for beginners it may be helpful to mist a
stencil with spray adhesive just to make sure you get great results.Got textured walls? No problem!
If your walls have a light/medium
texture, they are quite suitable for stenciling. With textured wall it
is better to use a large stencil brush instead of a roller. The project
will take longer, but the results will be worth it. It's especially
important that you put very little paint on your brush, always off-load
it on a paper towel, and use rubbing/dabbing motion while stenciling.
Using a spray adhesive also helps a lot to prevent any seepage of paint
under the stencils. Roller is not recommended on textured walls.
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 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 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
