Adhesive-backed material has a paper-backing that needs
to be removed before stencil will stick to surface being
painted, inked, stained or other application. Find the
edge of the material and slowly remove the paper from
the plastic stencil. Please do this slowly and carefully

If you are using this on a painted wall, then please
test a small section of the material by adhering it
lightly to the painted wall. Gently remove the film
and see if any paint has come off of your wall. There
are many brands of paint and each one has a unique coating
quality. We discovered that some coatings will release
paint onto the adhesive material, while other coatings
are more durable and do not peel off the wall.

adhesive backed stencil film by sticking and removing
it multiple times to any fabric, cardboard or other
The stencil film can be cleaned and reused. Depending
on the paint used, you can clean your stencil with a
variety of cleaning solutions such as:

and wiping off the paint.
If your stencil has thin bridges or detailed portions,
please clean carefully and be gentle.
