Clear you stencil of any dust or debris, and be sure your intended surface is clean. Then, hold or adhere your stencil, so it is flush against the surface underneath. If you are using an adhesive stencil, check for remove any air bubbles that may have formed between your stencil and its surface.
Apply your paint using the most appropriate method. Mylar plastic stencils are compatible with both indoor and outdoor paint varieties, but they yield the best results when paired with spray paints as rollers and paints tend to detract from details in their designs due to paint bleeding. Conversely, we recommend brushes and rollers for adhesive stencils, and advise against using highly durable paints that might make cleaning and reusing these products difficult.
Next, carefully remove your stencil, and clean it according to its specified care instructions. Store it by laying it flat in a room temperature environment, and give your project ample time to dry before showing off those amazing designs. For more specific instructions, view instructions listed on our category pages for clothing & apparel, spray paint, roller brushes, wood, and concrete/ outdoors.
14 Mil Mylar Plastic
This thick, durable plastic material is ideal for most DIY projects. Its applications include but are not limited to:
We recommend this type of stencil for the following surfaces: pavement, concrete, wood, metal, brick, fabric, and more.
Reuse this stencil, and extend its lifespan by cleaning the chemical resistant surface with a solvent or paint thinner. Then store the item by lying it flat in a temperature controlled environment. This plastic will not become brittle with age and can withstand temperatures between 100 and 300 degrees fahrenheit.
With proper care, mylar stencils are good for thousands of uses, but intricate designs are likely to separate more quickly than their simpler counterparts. For this reason, we recommend adhesive stencils for extremely detailed designs.
This material is as thick as 5 or 6 standard pieces of printer paper and is semi-opaque, meaning it is possible to partially see objects through mylar stencils. They are also flexible enough to use on rounded surfaces, but the more severely an item curves, the more likely a stencils details will be lost during application. We recommend adhesive stencils for items like water bottles that curve more than a standard trash bin.
Spray paints are optimal for mylar stencils because brushes and rollers have a tendency to bleed paint underneath, so letters and details are compromised. However, tightly fastening a stencil to its surface can minimize this bleeding and yield neater results. Additionally, mylar stencils are compatible with both indoor and outdoor paints.
3 Mil Adhesive Matte Polyester
This thin, adhesive plastic performs best on wood, walls, glass, plastic, metal, and other fine surfaces. Adhesive stencils are most commonly chosen for customizing nails, cars, boats, and dishes. They are useful for glass etching, interior decorating, and DIY projects that require highly detailed designs.
Each adhesive stencil has a lifespan of between 15 and 100 uses depending on application surfaces and maintenance. Gentle solutions like warm water and Windex work best when cleaning these items, but be careful to avoid contact between solvents and adhesives to preserve your stencils’ stickiness. Return your item to its reusable backing whenever it is not in use, and store it flat at room temperature.
Adhesive polyester stencils are about as thick as one standard sheet of printer paper and are flexible enough to adhere to almost any level of curvature. The material is solid-white and comes on craft brown backing paper. Capable of withstanding temperatures up to 300 degrees fahrenheit, this type of stencil work best with paint brushes and rollers. Please note that using durable paints may be difficult to remove and could limit the lifespan of your stencil.
