various applications on walls, furniture, textiles, etc.
easy to clean, reusable
The surface for painting has to be clean, dry and free from grease. Textiles without finishes. Spray the stencil with Marabu Stencil Adhesive Spray (spraying distance approx. 30 cm), leave to dry briefly, position as required and press firmly. When picking up paint with the stencilling brush or the paint roller, ensure to dab/roll any excess colour on a neutral surface first. This prevents any excess paint from getting underneath the stencil. Clean the stencil with cold water after use.
You will need: Marabu paint Marabu Stencilling Brush, Marabu Foam Roller or Marabu Painting Knife (for pasty paints) Marabu Stencil Adhesive Spray
Removing the adhesive spray
The adhesive spray used can easily be washed off with lukewarm water.Cleaning the stencils
Acrylic paints and other water-based paints which are not water-soluble have to be washed off the stencil immediately, while the paint is still wet. Any adhesive spray can be removed with cold water.Securely fixing stencils
Spray the stencil with Marabu Stencil Adhesive Spray, Marabu Fix-it or Marabu Silk Easy Fix, place it on the base material and cover with a paper towel. Simply press to achieve full-surface adhesion, even for delicate design sections of the stencil.Tone-on-tone creations
Apply Marabu Silk as a base coat and after drying stamp or stencil with thickened Marabu Silk paint in the same colour. The design will appear one shade darker and creates a great tone-on-tone effect.Variations of the stencil designs
To slightly change the stencil designs, you can cover parts of the design with masking tape before fixing the stencil on the surface.
Stencils on rendered walls
Can Marabu stencils be used on rendered walls as well?
Smooth walls and non-textured wallpaper are best for creative wall designs with stencils. For textured materials such as woodchip or rough plastering we recommend using Marabu Design Stamps.
