Stencil is a popular way to decorate walls. Stencil templates are reusable plastic sheets in which design has been cut. The templates can be used to paint the design onto signs or other surfaces. Also, they can be used repeatedly for multiple pieces. So, stencil templates are very useful to create designs in your home décor. Make stencil for signs is also easy. It is faster and exact than painting the signs by hand. Here are some easy things to do.
The first thing to do to make stencil for signs is by laying the stencil’s design pattern on the work surface and a clear acetate plastic sheer placed over it. Center the design as you desire and tape in place at the corners. After that, trace the design onto the plastic using fine tip permanent marker. Allow the areas to dry completely before touching them so that the marker won’t be smearing. Once the marker dried, cut the pattern shapes out with small blade cutting knife working slowly with a steady hand to create a great cut result. So, the end result with have straight lines and no mistakes. Now remove the tape from the corners and spray a layer of repositionable adhesive to the backside if you want it or just simply tape the stencil in place onto the signs.
Those are some easy steps to make stencil for signs. In order to end up with a great result, there are some things you need to put into consideration. Use 003-inch acetate for tracing the stencil for best results. Make sure your blade knife to cut the trace is small enough to reach small areas of the design. If you want to create stencil for multiple colors and layering, trace as many layers as you need and mark the areas for cutting on each layer to allow you cut in the appropriate areas.
