Surface cleaned of any dirt? Stencil attached? Great! It’s high time to move on to making decorations! Here, smooth sponge brushes will be the perfect choice as it will allow you to fill each element with accuracy. Also use the attached, smaller sheets, with the help of which you will be able to repaint the pattern in hard-to-reach places and create a unique imitation of wallpaper on the entire surface. To fill the wall with a pattern, wait until one coat dries. Only after the decor is thoroughly dried, can you start creating other elements. However, remember to apply as little paint as possible to the brush and cover the pattern with two thin layers using the taping method. Then you will avoid unwanted emulsion leaking under the stencil, and the resulting composition will look neatly and aesthetically.
