Massive stencils along full length Virgin Trains platforms

Massive stencils along full length Virgin Trains platforms

Possibly the biggest stencil project in the UK ever:

‘It’s a wonderful life’ has a magical ring to it and you would be hard pushed not to know that this is the UK’s, and most of the rest of the world’s, favourite Christmas movie of all time.
No wonder then that this sparked an idea for Stef Midmer and the PR team at Virgin Trains. Working with Lucy McGettigan and Joe Burdon of The Romans, this merging of minds has developed a really creative and thought- provoking approach to marketing Virgin Trains’ Christmas message of 2018. 

They decided to paint the script of heart-warming Christmas classic, ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’, along the length of its route from London to Glasgow. Next step was to source a stencil maker who had the skills and experience to cope with such a large scale project.

How do I use wall stencils? ( A lasercutit mini guide)

How do I use wall stencils? ( A lasercutit mini guide)

When you first receive your custom wall stencils, make sure the wall to be stencilled is clean and dry. Pre prepare all your paints and applicator tools ( rollers/ trays/ paint brushes for touch up) so you have everything 'to hand'.

You can use repositioning spray mount on the reverse, and sensitive masking tape, to hold the stencil in place. We recommend applying fast drying water based paints, using a sponge roller, in repeated thin coats to build up the colour and definition slowly.

Remove the stencil carefully to reveal your crisp and bold design!
