What stencil painting offer?

Stencil painting offers a placid view, beautifying the living spaces meaningfully. When it comes to wall stencil paints, the designs are vast, unique, and very defining. By defining we only mean the various themes that are available. They are very space specific, and indulging.

Stencil painting recreates home spaces into joyful, vibrant, and energetic places. You can blend them into either your wall colors or inline with your furniture, or simply fuse it with self-interests. For example a sea view stencil for those who love beaches, or a fruit and vegetable-themed stencil for dining spaces, etc.

From boho designs to abstract themes, from tropical stencil ideas to dominant floor stencils, from floral vines on furniture to botanical motif stencils- the options are limitless.

Tips & Tricks before stencil Painting

  1. Before we start stenciling, cordon off the bottom tile skirting, switch plates, and if you are reaching on the top then the ceiling area too.
  2. For convenience pour the paints into different trays based on usage
  3. Use a 4-inch foam roller, roll them before actually using them on the wall, on a paper towel, or on a newspaper to empty the excess paints.
  4. Stick the stencils with spray glue firmly, enclose tapes on either end.
  5. Gently roll the brush on the stencil and remove it. By the time you prepare for the series, the paint of the first design should have dried out.
  6. Take care when you come down to the bottom of the wall, ensure you stick the skirting with tape.
  7. When you come to the bottom half of the wall, start rolling foam brush from bottom to top.

With a few careful steps, you can create superb wall versions that will awe everyone. For more ideas browse online, research on designs, choose something fancy and appealing at the same time.
