    Step 1: Place and secure the wall stencil with painter’s tape. We recommend starting the first repeat at the top center of your feature wall. Use a bubble level to make sure the wall stencil is straight.

    Step 2: Load a stencil brush with your first paint color. Then offload the excess paint from the brush onto a paper towel. This offloading technique helps ensure the paint is evenly dispersed onto the stencil brush, you are using minimal paint, and prevention of paint bleeding under the stencil.

    Step 3: Stencil a few elements of the design with light to medium pressure and in a circular motion.

    Step 4: Repeat Step 2 and Step 3 for each of the other paint colors.

    Step 5: Remove the wall stencil and reposition it to the next repeat. There are built in registration marks on the wall stencil so that you can perfectly and easily align it.

    Step 6: Repeat Steps 2 through 5, working up, down, and side to side to completely stencil your feature wall with pattern. And that’s it! Now you’ve got a beautifully stenciled wall with a colorful mandala wallpaper-like pattern!

    • Please advise on how to clean a stencil after paint has dried on it? I used a expensive wall paint that has primer built in. I have spray adhesive on other side. Design not as prestine as it was. I need to clean it. Help!

    • Hi Linda – Our stencils are durable and bendable so you can bend them into the corners. Here is a tutorial video on how to do that :) https://www.royaldesignstudio.com/blogs/stenciling-tips/wall-stencil-corners-edges
