How to Use DecoArt Stencils


Don't overload the stencil brush or foam pouncer. Blot excess paint before applying to prevent the paint from seeping under the edges of the stencil.


To ensure a stenciled word will be straight, use a ruler and a pencil or chalk pencil to lightly draw a line. Follow the stencil guide lines to align the letters or numbers you are stenciling. Position stencil, tape to secure, and proceed to stencil the letters. For curved lines, use a round or oval object as a template to draw your guide lines. Once the paint is dry, erase the marks before sealing with a varnish.


For a non-stencilled look, connect the bridges within the letters and numbers when you are finished stencilling. Take a small paint brush and dip the tip into the same color used for stencilling the rest of the letter. Connect the pieces of the letter.


After stenciling the center section, lightly mark with a pencil or chalk through the alignment guides on the end where the next section will be placed. Remove the stencil from the painted area and allow paint to dry. Match the alignment guides on the opposite end of the stencil to the marks you have just drawn. The painted stencil area should fit seamlessly with the pattern on the stencil. Secure with tape and continue stenciling in this manner until the border or background is complete.


To create painted and patterned letters, first position and affix the letter stencil to the surface area and then stencil the background color of the letter. Remove stencil and let dry. Then position and affix the layering pattern stencil directly over the painted background letter. Position and affix the letter stencil on top of pattern stencil. Stencil in the pattern color. Remove stencils and let dry.

To create patterned letters, first position and affix the layering pattern stencil directly to surface. Position and affix the letter stencil on top of the pattern sheet. Stencil in the pattern color. Remove stencils and let dry.

Tips for DecoArt Stencils

When stenciling on fabric, try adding fine grit sandpaper between the backing board and the fabric, grit side up. The fine grit sandpaper will "grab" the fabric and prevent it from moving or shifting while you are stenciling.

Properly loading your stencil brush is the key to achieving successful stenciled images. It is best to load the stencil brush and then remove some of the paint creating a "dry brush." To load, apply paint to the bottom bristles of the brush and wipe onto a paper towel prior to stenciling on your project surface.

When stenciling an overall background pattern on your project surface, it is best to begin stenciling in the center of your surface and work out toward the edges. This will ensure that you end up with an even design that is centered and equal at the edges.

To create a 3-letter monogram with Initial Impressions Stencils, stencil the larger center letter before aligning the smaller letters on each side.

Wash stencils as needed throughout the project to prevent paint from drying on the stencil edges. This step will ensure clean, crisp edges from start to finish.

For heavier coverage, apply two thin coats instead of one thick coat. Allow to dry between coats.
