you will need

Paint- any thick paint will do, just use the correct paint for the surface you are working on. Acrylics and emulsions work well for walls.

Stencil Brush, dense foam roller or sponge - use a flat ended stencil brush for best results.

Low tack stencil tape or repositionable spray adhesive - for holding the stencil in place whilst you paint it.

A paper plate and some kitchen towel or scraps of paper for decanting paint and prepping the brush.

how to stencil

1 - Hold into position with small pieces of tape around the edge of the stencil to hold it in place whilst you paint. You could just hold the stencil with your free hand but it's important not to let the stencil move at all.

2 - Pour a little bit of paint onto a paper plate. You'll be surprised at how little paint you're going to need! Load the very end of the brush with some paint - then...

..remove most of the paint.

Simply blot and swirl the brush onto another part of the plate or some kitchen towel to distribute the paint evenly on the bristles and remove excess paint from the brush. You're aiming for a virtually dry brush here.

3 - Begin stenciling

Apply the brush to the stencil in a dabbing or swirling motion. A bit like a Woodpecker! Keep the brush upright and at 90 degrees to the stencil at all times.

Pay particular attention to the edges of each hole in the stencil. There are lots of cool shading techniques which we'll cover another day but to start with just concentrate on filling in all the cut parts of the stencil. Only reload the stencil brush when no more paint is available.

4- If you fancy adding another colour, go for it. To keep colours separate use another stencil brush and wait for the first colour to dry, but, if it's a blended look you're going for you could try adding a second colour whilst the first paint colour is still tacky and blending by overlapping with the second.

5- Once you've finished painting the stencil it's time for the big reveal! Just peel the stencil away and voila, you're an artist!!

Top Tip - Remove the stencil before paint dries, especially if the paint is quite thick. There is a danger of peeling paint from your stencilled surface if you allow a film of paint to dry across the stencil!
