A Stenciling Tutorial On How To Stencil A Corner
Good morning, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends. We’d like you to welcome back Greg, one of the Cutting Edge Stencils owners and a creative DIYer. It’s no secret that Greg loves to bring his walls to life using stencils. White walls don’t stand a chance with Greg around and we often find him giving them a makeover using our beautiful wallpaper stencils. Wallpaper can be a hassle to install and very expensive so a Moroccan inspired stencil pattern, like the Marrakech Trellis Stencil is a great option. Sometimes finding the right way to carry the stenciled pattern around the corner can be tricky. So we’ve put together this tutorial to help guide you through the process.
In this instructional instructional video, Greg shows an easy way to stencil a corner and achieve that wallpaper look. For this particular project, he used the Marrakech Trellis pattern but you could easily swap it out and use any of our allover stencil patterns.
Let’s walk through the steps for completing this corner project. Greg kicked off the task with a freshly painted white wall. Like we mentioned above, he selected a trellis wall pattern but other allover patterns would easily work.
With his beautiful Moroccan pattern in hand, he was ready to start stenciling! Please check out this tutorial on how to stencil an accent wall. We’re going to fast forward to the corner. You were probably using the clip-on stencil level to ensure your pattern was evenly placed on the wall. Once you reach the corner, you will need to remove the stencil level.
Then mask off the corner that you are working towards.
Position the stencil so that it aligns with the previously painted wall and it wraps around the corner. Use blue painter’s tape to hold the stencil in place.
Roll the paint directly into the corner using a dense foam roller. Be sure to roll off any excess paint on a piece of paper towel. Too much paint will cause the design to bleed.
Push the stencil into the corner and use the stencil brush to complete that area of the pattern. Pounce the stencil brush directly into the corner.
Repeat this process until you have finished the pattern in the corner. Then unmask the tape carefully so you do not pull off the base coat of paint. Next you will mask off the wall you just stenciled. Position the stencil so it matches up with the wall you just finished and reinstall the level to ensure the stencil is even. If it aligns with the previously painted wall then you can begin painting the pattern.
After your corner is completely stenciled, give yourself a chance to step back and admire the trellis wall pattern. Are you ready to see his blue-tiful accent wall? We thought so! Here is his corner featuring the Marrakech Trellis.
