How to use our flexible, self-adhesive, reusable stencils

Thoroughly clean and dry the workpiece ready for decoration.

Take care to remove all traces of dust and grease.

Have cleaning cloths to hand.

Remove the stencil from its plastic bag, and then carefully peel away from backing paper.


Keep both the plastic bag and backing paper handy - they're important for the clean-up!

Position the stencil and press it evenly to the surface, taking care to press down the cut edges.

Apply your material, using the appropriate method.

If you're using a sponge applicator, keep dabbing perpendicular to the workpiece for smooth coverage.

Very carefully remove the stencil from the decorated workpiece.

Do not make sharp movements - lift the stencil smoothly away, from different directions if necessary.


Lay the stencil onto the clear plastic bag that it came in.

Now rinse the stencil in warm water. If needed, you can use a little washing-up liquid.

Lay flat and pat the stencil dry while still on the plastic bag. Then carefully peel off and return it to the backing paper.

Make sure the bag is dry, then store your stencil for next time.

Cleaning and proper care of your stencil will ensure the long-term performance of the self-adhesive layer.

Now enjoy your result!

Step 1


1. Reusable

Our stencils are made from a strong vinyl material that is easy to clean and able to be used many times (as long you look after it!)


2. Flexible

Our stencils are also flexible enough to apply to a wide range of surfaces. Flat, round, or even some spherical surfaces like this bottle!

2. Self-adhesive

The extra-special ingredient! The powerful self-adhesive is strong yet temporary and reusable. This means clean lines and no paint bleeding!

What surfaces can you stencil?

Anything that the stencil will stick to, really!

Even though the adhesive is strong, it's temporary and stays on the stencil, not your workpiece.

You can use our stencils on wood, MDF, veneer, primed canvas, metals, glass, ceramics, fabrics, plastics, tiles, cardboard, even paper.

Look around and see what you could stencil!


What materials can you stencil with?

Our vinyl stencils are great for so many materials:

  • acrylic paints

  • gouache paints

  • colour spray paints

  • colour fabric paints and dyes

  • glass and ceramic paints

  • modelling pastes

  • structural gels

  • gilding foils

  • markers, felt pens, chalk

  • coloured pencils, wax crayons...

Get creative!
