Product Description

Rebel Border Stencil    14 mil

Border Stencil: 20 3/4″ x 4 1/2″  Stencil: 4 x 2 1/2″   Stencil: 6 x 2 1/2″

SUPER DURABLE

Super Durable =  perfect to create thick/thicker/thickest designs.  Can use any and every medium, many re-uses.  Clean as soon as you are done using.

Strong = can create thick/thicker/thickest designs but will need to take more care in doing so.  Can use any and every medium, very good re-use, provided you properly clean.  Clean once done.

Lighterweight = not meant for thicker/thickest designs.  If you blade a thicker medium to create a raised stencil, understand that your stencil will take a beating, and you will more than likely experience bleed.   I have used them for thick, but it is quite frustrating.    I prefer using with paints and glazes.  As soon as your stencil is complete, wash your stencil with care, so you can reuse in the future.

 

RAISED STENCIL  – using thicker mediums like Texture Stone, Texture Plaster, Caromal Textured Basecoats

1) Position your stencil, avoid spray adhesive and/or tape – we’ve found that even delicate and frog tapes will pull freshly painted finishes.  We apply all our stencils WITHOUT tape.

2)  Use a flexible flat blade ( gift cards work fabulous, as do plastic scrapers) , start at one end, and float your thicker medium over the stencil design.  The process is much like icing a cake.  If you scrape tighter, you will achieve an allover, even design, but can risk a little bleed of product.  We like to just go with the flow,  spreading it out, over the whole stencil, not worrying about how even or uneven it is.  Having areas that are thicker, or even thinner or empty, adds to the character. Avoid overworking,  once you cover an area l leave it alone!  I know thats hard for so many, but trust me, it will look AMAZING when its done!   

Once you cover your whole design, lift one corner of the stencil, and peel it up and off your raised design. If you notice any bleed, you can remove it using a pencil eraser, or a damp Q-tip.  I will often let my element dry, then go at it with a flat blade razor.

The thicker you lay your product, the longer dry time required.  Expect 24-48 hours.

SMOOTH STENCIL – using mediums like Chalk/Clay Paints, Cottage Paints, Botanical, Reclaim, Glazes, Metallics

1) Position your stencil, avoid spray adhesive and/or tape – we’ve found that even delicate and frog tapes will pull freshly painted finishes.  We apply all our stencils WITHOUT tape.

2) Using a stencil brush,  lightly load your brush, then bang it off onto a surface like a paper towel or foam plate, I mean BANG it,  until there is almost no color left on your brush head.  Then head to your stencil design, and start pouncing out your pattern with the color on the brush.   This is not dainty tapping,  this is  GET YOUR ARM MUSCLES going… POUNCE that color, bang it, over the stencil design, until there is nothing left – then reload your brush and repeat.     The key to easy stenciling is NOT using much product – if you have a little too much on your brush, you WILL smear/bleed your pattern.

Once fully covered lift stencil from one corner.  Let dry.

SMOOTH STENCIL – using Caromal Colours Stencil Cremes  (these are lovely!)

1) Position your stencil, avoid spray adhesive and/or tape – we’ve found that even delicate and frog tapes will pull freshly painted finishes.  We apply all our stencils WITHOUT tape.

2) Using a stencil brush,  lightly load your brush, then bang it off onto a surface like a paper towel or foam plate, I mean BANG it,  until there is almost no color left on your brush head.  Then head to your stencil design, and  lightly start swirling your paint over your pattern.   The Stencil Cremes are like nothing I’ve seen – they are soft, and creamy, and barely any on your brush will cover forever – lightly swirling about, until your pattern is covered, with no bleed.   It’s way easier on your arm, and creates a lovely, natural effect, easily shadowing edges if you like that.

Once fully covered lift stencil from one corner.  Let dry.
