on an uneven surface will negatively affect the outcome of the printed image.
note it is advisable not to paint water-based paint on to oil-based walls as the paint won’t adhere

your proposed wall art layout by marking the stencil against the walls with a
pencil or chalk and by using a water leveller to ensure that your stencil is
placed level. This will ensure that your
artwork is straight, positioned correctly and as you per your personal
is smart to start with the least visually "important" wall, like thecorner above a dooror top left corner on the wall.
This gives you an opportunity to work out your technique in a less conspicuous
area. By the time you reach an "important" wall, you'll be so

an Accent/feature wall,
it's smart to start on a section of the wall that allows you to do an
un-interrupted floor-to-ceiling row of the pattern. This way you establish a
perfect vertical pattern from which to extend left and right.
your large-all-over stencil have large patterns, you could use a sponge or a
stippling brush, depending on the effect that you want to achieve (see effects
as per shown by walltowallstencils.com picture 1 below).
rollers can also be used but the paint will need to be rolled

stencil on to the wall. If this is not
done, your stencil paintwork will smudge. *Personal opinion - a sponge is much more effective and you could go over the stencil design again to create a darker contrast if necessary (see sample of effects below - picture 2).

sponge is advisable to provide more detailed differentiation when 2 or more
colours are used in the design (see RichardMordonIllustration.blog below - picture 3).
