To paint the stencils we used a sponge dipped lightly into the dark pink paint. We used a dabbing technique instead of painting it on, this made the stenciling look more realistic to real patterned wall paper. Using a different sponge we used the lighter pink to dab over the top of the darker stenciled pink, we did this to give the wall paper a slightly textured look, this also helped dull down the harhness of the darker pink.
I think this technique worked really well and gave the wall paper a more realistic look.
Although the acetate was very effective, it broke easily as some parts of the stencil were very thin, we managed to fix the broken parts with cellotape. But as the stencil broke more we decided that it would be more time effective to cut out a new stencil.The stencil also needed cleaning often as the build up of paint would stretch the acetate and make it sticky.
For the cornors, the stencil was too big to fit, so Ryhan made another stencil which was half the size of the original. This worked well but was very time consuming as the stencil need to be washed often as the stencil as needed to be flipped over in order to create the design.
