Gently remove your stencil from a postal package and if necessary leave it on a flat surface allowing some time for sheet to come back to its original shape.
Use a spirit level to draw a few horizontal or vertical markings.
When using Repositionable Adhesive spray a fine film to a back of stencil from distance of 20 - 30cm or
when using masking tape cut a few short strips and attach them to the top of stencil.
Line up the top and sides of the stencil with the markings you did previously and then:
when using Repositionable Adhesive gently stick the sheet from top to bottom with special care towards small elements that could be overlooked and not stuck properly to the surface or bent and kinked or
when using masking tape stick the sheet to the surface and tape it all around. If there are loose pieces of stencil hanging down use a tape to secure them to the surface.
Dip a sponge or piece of cloth in paint. Use paper towel to remove the excess of paint to prevent bleeding.Work the sponge over the stencil gently pushing the paint into the cut out shapes.
When it's all done allow a few minutes for the paint to set and gently remove the stencil.
Use a small paint brush to fill gaps caused by bridges .
When finished just use water and soap or mineral spirit to clean up the stencil and re-use it again and again.
Our advice: For the best results take your time while securing your stencil and paint carefully.
Try to use more colours and create your very own design. You can replace and wash the stencil as many times as you like. Stencilling can be fun for every one! Why not ask children to give you a hand while decorating their bedroom walls!
