Can I stencil a textured wall ?

Stenciling gives the best results on plain walls. However, it is possible to stencil over textured surfaces but it depends on the roughness of the texture. If you’re not sure about it just send us an e-mail and attach a close-up photo of your wall and we’ll answer as soon as we can.

How do I avoid bleeding and smudging when stenciling?

Remember, less is more when stenciling! Due to its nature, when stenciling, bleeding will occur but it can be reduced if you take care of some basic things:
– use a flocked paint rolled
– use less paint on the roller;
– roll off the excess paint to newspapers
– do not apply too much pressure on the roller when stenciling;
– use acrylic paint
– use a good adhesive spray for the stencil;
– take your time, practice first and do not rush when doing it;
– if bleed occurs you can wipe off with a wet tissue.

Do not worry if you’ll have few edges not perfect, in the overall pictures you will not see a thing! Just take a step back and look the wall. Consider that stenciling is an artistic process, a DIY activity for you to have some fun!

Can I use the stencil on other surfaces too?

Sure thing! A stencil can be used not just on walls, but it gives great results on furniture, floors, textiles, garage doors, you name it! Only your imagination is the limit, you can use it over and over again.
