Our Stem and Leaves stencil is a separate stencil design that works perfecty with our various Flower stencils: Zinnia stencil, Anemone stencil, Dahlia stencil, Chrysanthemum stencil and many more, which are sold separately. It's perfect for stenciling a fence, or creating a lovely floral border in a kids room. Paint some flower stencils on your boring yard fence instead of (or or in addition to) the real ones! It's easy and fast and instantly give your backyard a beautiful relaxing wibe. We suggest layering the stencils and using a couple shades of paint, like an off-white and a light grey, to create a layered effect with your flower stencils. The Stem and leaf stencil consists of a few stem and leaf shapes that you can combine to create naturally looking flower stems. Just add the flower heads (sold separately) and your stenciled flower border is complete! You can use this stencil with our Medium or Large flower stencils. Please refer to the Recommended stencils to choose your flower stencil heads.
Stenciling on rough or textured surfaces may contribute to increased paint bleed. While it might not matter much for the outdoor fence stenciling project, please see our F.A.Q. section for more info.

You'll find them extremely helpful for your stenciling project. Even beginners get great results!
We recommend using this stencil with our Clip-on Stencil Level, (sold separately). Discover how easy it is to achieve perfectly level results without dealing with all those bulky heavy bubble levels and expensive laser levels. We cannot recommend the Level enough, it's a real time-saver and is so handy!
Although our stencils do not require the use of spray adhesive, this pattern could benefit from it to help minimize paint seepage, especially if your walls have a slight texture to them. (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. Note: you will still need to hold the stencil in place with a few pieces of blue painters tape! Adhesive by itself is not enough to hold the stencil on the wall. Clean-up tip: Spray the stencil with Simple Green to help to remove adhesive residue. Please note that once you've used spray adhesive on your stencil, it will never really come off completely. That is why we personally prefer not to use adhesive, and instead use less paint on your roller or stencil brush.
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 dense foam 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 much texture.
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.
