you want to minimize paint seepage or are using high contrasting
colors, adhesive is very helpful (Elmer's spray adhesive seems to be the
best). We strongly recommend using spray adhesive with this pattern.
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
About paint seepage :
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 minimize seepage,
use spray adhesive and less paint on your roller and brush. This particular pattern is very forgiving as it captures a natural stone look and imperfections are part of that look.Did you know you can stencil your own fabric
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
