Mandala stencils are so popular for today's DIY decorators. This Mandala Estella has a antique wrought iron influence and can be used in classical interiors as a wall stencil or even as a ceiling medallion. Mandala stencils are easy to use despite there seeming intricacy. Perfect for a first time stenciling project.
For the mandalas that are 12" to 30", you will be receiving a full medallion. For the 36" and 44" mandalas, you will receive half of the design and to complete the medallion, pick up the stencil after completing one side, flip it and line up the registration marks (see photo above), tape it and do it again. Alignment is easy and effortless.
Be creative: use different colors for different elements of the design, add shading - possibilities are endless.
This medallion stencil is so easy to use - virtually anyone can do it. It's better to remove the light fixture when you stencil, but you can stencil with the fixture in place, too. You'll need to mist the stencil with spray adhesive (Elmer's is great) then tape the stencil to the ceiling using BLUE painter's tape, then load your foam roller with the paint of your choice (latex or acrylic). Get rid of excess paint by rolling the foam roller over a folded paper towel. Then, just roll it over the stencil applying medium pressure for an instant fabulous result! Don't press on the roller too hard otherwise you might get some bleed. Remove the stencil, rotate it 180 degrees, tape it and do it again.

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.
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 paint seepage : 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 minimize seepage, use spray adhesive and less paint on your roller and brush.
Did you know you can stencil your own fabric and 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 much texture.
