Materials and How to Use 

Bespoke stencils are made in varying thicknesses of material depending on the end use of the stencil. We make most of our stencils using polyester film, which is a highly durable and reusable material.

125/190 micron Polyester Film

Generally used for large stencils which may need to be separated into various pieces. A light weight material that is easy to hold on the wall, it is reusable providing it is looked after well.

250/350 micron polyester film

Used for the majority of wall stencils as lightweight enough to be held on the wall, thick enough to be re-used many times when looked after and cost effective.

500 micron polyester film

This thicker polyester film is heavy duty, but still rollable and re-usable.

2mm polypropylene

Thick, rigid material which is mainly used for floor stencils but occasionally used for the wall. Also used for replica brick stencils.

Whether you’re using a foam roller, paint brush, or spray paint, there are a few rules of best practice which will help you create the perfect artwork.

  1. Apply 3M spray mount to the back of the stencil (not needed for 2mm polypropylene)
  2. Secure stencil in place with masking tape or duct tape to take the weight - making it as flat as possible
  3. Apply multiple thin layers of paint to avoid any excess and ensure a crisp edge.
  4. Foam roller- roll away from the edges of the stencil, apply light layers
  5. Spray paint - shake can well, apply light layers at a time Paint brush - brush away from edges of the stencil, apply light layers Remove the stencil carefully and touch up if needed.
