Top 10 Stencilling Tips

Here's our top 10 list of essentials required to achieve success with your stencilling projects:

  1. Preparation is key
  2. Apply the stencil to a clean, dry and dust free surface
  3. Avoid stencilling on a freshly painted surface
  4. Use repositioning glue and/or sensitive, low tack masking tape to keep your stencil in place
  5. Use a spirit level to align your stencil with the straight top edge 
  6. Remove excess paint from your brush or roller prior to painting
  7. Apply repeated thin coats of paint to reduce the chance of a bleed
  8. Remove your stencil before the paint dries completely
  9. Touch up your design by hand if required
