How to do mandala stencils
What you need:
- roller (foam roller not the hairy one)
- latex wall paint (water base) or chalk paint
- paint tray
- cleaning rag or paper towel
Ok lets get started: remember this is fun...so breathe deeply...put some cool music on and smile…
1. Take your mandala out of the box and lay it flat; if it curls up put some books on it
2. Make sure the surface is clean, smooth and dust free
3. Position your stencil where you like it, and secure it with a few pieces of painters tape, for the Holy mandala you have to make sure it is leveling, or use a measuring tape to make sure your stencil is straight.
4. Put some paint onto the tray and than roll it so there is no excess paint (so it doesn’t drip) use light to medium pressure, as excessive pressure may cause paint bleeding. Be careful not to roll over the edge of the stencil!
5. For a light effect just roll once, if you want more contrast you will need a second coat. Let the first one dry for 10 minutes and than roll over it again.
6. Patiently wait 10 minutes and then carefully remove your stencil and be proud with your artwork.
7. The Holy, Yoga and Mystery mandala you wait 10 minutes until the paint is dry before you continue with the other half; the second half you place the stencil over the dot and the drop which you already did on the first half; so the stencil connects perfectly.
YOU DID IT!!
