ARKIVA Wall Stencil
ARKIVA Wall Stencil
Dizzy Duck Designs Stencils are an effective and inexpensive way to spruce up tired or plain walls, floors or furniture. We provide a wide range of reusable home decor stencils for painting. Whatever your stencil project, large or small and whatever style you prefer, we’ve got the perfect stencil for the job!
Inspiration for the Arkiva Stencil came from a customer's Swedish farmhouse renovation. After stripping back several layers of wallpaper the original paper was revealed, et voila, the Arkiva design was born.
The Wall stencil comes with a top edging stencil to help create a clean starting edge at the top of the wall.
See product images for sizing.
SPEED UP YOUR PROJECT
If you have a larger project then maybe buy 2 stencils and save time. Stencils need cleaning after several applications as paint builds up. This causes bleed under the stencil creating blotchy lines which you do not want!
To clean the stencil we recommend soaking in warm soapy water until the paint easily rubs off, no vigorous scrubbing needed! Soak one stencil clean while you continue your project with the other stencil. Check out our current multi purchase discounts.
There are repeat sections of the stencil to help reposition the stencil. Please see product images for an instructional diagram.
Basic stencil instructions are included with each order. Need any more hands on advice? Please get in touch, we’re always happy to advise.
LESS IS MORE!
The biggest mistake most people make when stencilling is overloading the brush or roller with paint. This will inevitably lead to paint bleeding underneath the stencil and causing blurry edges. You will be surprised how little paint is actually needed! Don’t overload paint onto the brush/roller and rub most of the paint off onto a piece of card before applying to the stencil. Practice first on some spare paper or card before attempting your project.
