STENCILING WITH WALL TEMPLATES

Wall templates allow you to divide walls into interesting sections (for example, top or middle horizontally or even vertically). First, apply a base wall color. Once dry, decide where you want the “split” and make markings around the room. Begin in the most visible corner and try to “join” behind a door or window frame.
 
Select either the top or bottom part of the template design (depending on if you paint from above or below). Use masking tape or re-positionable spray to hold the template in place while painting. Paint and move the template as shown in the pictures below.
 
Use template to apply 2nd color.   Use the registration marks ( ) to link the template from side to side.
Try using template designs in multi-layers for great visual effects!
