Plaster relief stencilling creates a 3D effect and can be used as a base level relief pattern to then build up manually to give more relief and dimension. 

You will need;

  • A clean surface area to stencil onto
  • Fine plaster
  • A trowel
  • Tape, ruler and pencil
  • Custom made stone mask stencil

Plastering using stencils is super easy and can be done in minutes. Follow our simple step by step guide;

Step 1

Once you have marked up your desired area using the pencil and ruler then you will need to prepare your stencil by peeling off the backing to reveal the sticky side.
