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'.

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