Our Buffalo Check stencil pattern is based on a classic textile design introduced in the US in 1850. But this classic pattern has Scottish roots dating back to the 1700’s! The textile designer kept a herd of Buffalo and so his pattern was nicknamed “The Buffalo Check”. But today, this trendy stencil design has found it’s way into some of the most stylish interiors.
While prior stenciling experience is a plus when using wallpaper stencils, but even beginners get great results! This plaid design is recommended for feature/accent wall or entire room, and also works for furniture and fabric embellishment. You can try stenciling this design on the front of a dresser using a stencil brush.

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.
Although usually it is not necessary to use spray adhesive with our stencils, for this geometric pattern it is recommended. If 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). 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.
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.
