The stencil has been cut from transparent Mylar stencil film which is thin yet strong and hard wearing. Our stencils are reusable, washable and flexible and are suitable for use with all types of paints including spray paint. HOW TO STENCIL Stencilling is a fun, fast and cost effective way to make a big difference to a wall space. The most popular way to paint your stencil is with a brush or roller (but you can also use any other type of paint like fabric paint or spray paint for example depending on your application needs) Adhere the stencil to the surface you want to stencil using repositionable spray mount or pieces of tape. Add a little paint to a brush or roller and then remove the excess paint on some paper towel. Paint through the cut out parts of the stencil, you may need to paint more than one layer. If you use to much paint it will bleed under the stencil leaving a blotchy result. We recommend practising on some card before painting the wall. Once the stencil has been painted, you can remove it without having to leave it to dry, you can then replace it somewhere else and paint again. For tutorials please visit our idealstencils website.
