Materials You Need To Create Animal Print Wall Art

  • Animal Print stencil: This will be the centerpiece of your creation.
  • Paint: You need different colors based on the theme you choose.
  • Masking tape: Hold your stencil and secure the surrounding area from paint splatters.
  • Good sponge brushes will ensure that paint goes evenly inside the stencil patterns.

Once you have all the necessary materials ready with you, it’s time to get started on creating your fantastic DIY wall art with animal print stencils;

Step 1: Select Your Stencil & Paint Colors

As a starting point, decide what design/model of an animal pattern best suits your taste and will work perfectly with existing decor elements in that space; Cheetah spotted prints? The stripy zebra prints? Or leopard spots? Whatever choice/s your style selected, pick complementary-color paints that coordinate well with these prints, making them appear more visually recognizable even though stylized, such as bright reds paired against stark black/white cheetah-spotted designs that can look amazing!

Step 2: Clean Up The Surface

Masking tape cover up surface edges that are not planned to be painted, along with placing masking tape at the back of the stencil to ensure it holds in position. Next, clean up the surface you need to paint thoroughly, removing dust, oil, or dirt that can ruin your design.

Step 3: Start Painting

Mix two paint colors on your brush sponge paddle to add natural texture and depth. It is always recommended to use a little bit of water with paint for easy application without streaks & uneven lines.

Now comes the fun part, position your animal print stencil right where you want it on a previously marked taped area covering all spaces except where you wish to apply color – Once in a perfect position, go ahead and paint inside/through each patterned gap till complete. The key is not pressing too hard repeatedly into any single region so as not to smudge parts around; this avoids any minor errors that would jeopardize intended outcomes.

Step 4: Repeat the Process

Looking back now, notice how what was painted appears incomplete, leaving most space bare. That’s because we need one more layer in an alternating direction.

To do this, simply wait for the previous layer/s color (first layer) completely dry, then place the stencil in the opposite direction matching uneven gaps from the first patterns making sure the newly stenciled location sits adjacent but not touching evenly between the existing ones. Keep repeating the process until the whole selected region becomes full with designs desired made precise through outlining & proper alignment.

Step 5: Touchup and Clean Up

Once everything is dehydrated, peel off stencils carefully, even though most are reusable anyway – touch up any tiny spots if needed –spruce up borders by brushing along edges before peeling off the tape and dispose of material hygiene-consciously wrap up until the next wall-art project or discard responsibly in line with environmental regulations!
