Adhesive Stencil Instructions

Wash surface in warm soapy water. Allow to dry. Moisten a paper towel with rubbing alcohol and wipe entire surface to remove any residue.

Plan and measure both the stencil and the surface you're stenciling. To get an idea of what it will look like before painting, copy and print (or trace) the design on paper first and tape it to your surface. Finalize how you want the stencils arranged and then mark the placement with a wax pencil. Use glass patterning tape to block off areas you don't want to stencil.

Use a straight edge and wax pencil to draw a guide line if applicable. Remove backing from stencil and set aside. Place stencil on surface, making sure it is flat, wrinkle-free and firmly attached. Pour a small amount of paint on your paint palette. Load paint sparingly on a pouncer. Dab off access, then lightly tap or pounce on a thin layer of paint. Apply a second coat if necessary. Avoid overloading your pouncer or the extra paint may seep under the stencil.

While paint is still wet, carefully peel off stencil.

Clean all stencils, brushes, and tools immediately after use before the paint dries. Use Martha Stewart Crafts™ Brush & Stencil Cleaner to remove dried paint. Let dry. Attach dry stencil to backing to store for later use.

Tips

Create a unique pattern by repeating a stencil over an area. Arrange the shapes in a grid for a structured look, or apply randomly for a playful, organic effect. Mix different stencils together to create a whole new motif. For a look that's cohesive and natural, limit your palette to one, two or three colors. Use varying shades of one color, complementary colors, or colors in the same family (warm tones, cool tones, rich tones, pastels, etc.).
