Methods of stencilling

 

It’s very quick and easy to create a professional marking with stencils.

 

 

 

Be Professional, use a Stencil!

 

There are two popular methods of stencilling, both of which extremely easy to implement. Stippling is a widely used method that involves the dabbing of the loaded brush against the gaps in the stencil. This process doesn’t have too much depth and results in smooth shades of colour.

 

Swirling is the other popular method – it involves the twirling of the brush in round motions in the stencil gaps. The final look is dependent on the amount of force applied when applying the brush strokes. If you are unsure as to which style will suit your particular stencil, you can practice on a piece of paper before settling for a particular method. Experimenting beforehand is a great way to find a design that you will truly love!

 

When choosing a stencilling technique, it is important to first assess the size of the stencil. When stencilling on larger areas, it may be easier to use a foam roller. A roller covers large areas and ensures the job can be finished quicker. The paint is spread evenly leading to a smooth finish which can be spruced up by adding a second layer using the stippling technique.

 

When dealing with smaller surfaces that require detailed stencilling, swirling is the ideal method. Whilst stippling and rollers can miss the small edges and corners of stencils, the swirling technique ensures every obscure area of the stencil is covered. Intricate stencils that consist of sharp areas require an intricate application of the swirling technique rather than the indiscriminate application of a roller.
