The number of applications for each stencil varies, based on care of the stencil and surface, cleaning of the stencil and surface, and type of surface. Gently caring for your stencils can improve their longevity for future uses.

Our stencils come in a variety of sizes for any creation. The stencils are a reusable silk screen material with adhesive on the back. Stencils last approximately 10-15 uses depending on how they are applied/removed, to what they are applied, and how well they are cared for.

We recommend you wash your stencil immediately after use. Use cool water to rinse off excess paste. Do not let your stencil soak in standing water, as it will remove the stickiness on the back of the stencil. Once the stencil is rinsed off, you will want to dry it by laying it face down with the sticky side up. Once the stencil is dry, you can reattach the shiny side of the backing slip to the sticky side of the stencil. You can use a disinfectant wipe to clean off any excess residue on your stencil. This will also rejuvenate the sticky side. Do NOT use baby wipes, as it could reduce the adhesive value.

Our chalk paste is a specialized formula that is a wet paste, but once applied to a surface and dries, it creates a beautiful
semi-permanent design. Don’t like the design? Want to try a different color? On non-porous surfaces, such as chalkboards, the paste can easily be removed by washing with water. Porous surfaces are difficult to remove all traces of the paste color because the paste gets in every nook-and-cranny. We do not recommend using chalk paste on fabrics or projects that can be washed. Our reusable stencils work in harmony with our chalk paste to give you a beautiful design every time. Get creative and layer with different colors, add glitter, try blending, or add embellishments for original pieces

Mix the paste well with the multi-task tool or stir stick. You will want the paste consistency to be similar to yogurt. If the paste is dry, add a little distilled water and stir. Once you have the right consistency, apply the paste evenly with a squeegee to cover the stencil design. Apply a little paste at a time. A small amount goes a long way. Once the design is covered, scrape away the excess paste with the squeegee, and before the chalk dries, pull back the stencil. Remove the stencil before the paste is completely dry. That’s it!

When your project is completed, we recommend scraping the sides and rim of the jar and gently clean the inside of the jar lid before tightly securing the jar lid. By keeping the chalk paste jar rim clean and tightened when not in use, you will preserve the lifetime of your paste. A helpful tip is, after you use your paste, spray the top layer with a small amount of distilled water before replacing the lid back on. Paste should be stored in a cool environment (less than 80º F). Shelf life expectancy of Magnolia paste is approximately 6 months.

If your Paste does become dry you may add a small amount of water and mix it well.
Add little drops at a time until the correct consistency (such as yogurt consistency) is reached.

Our permanent ink is a specialized formula that is wet when applied but once applied to a surface, dries to create a beautiful permanent design. We recommend the use of inks on fabrics and projects that are heat resistant, such as ceramics. Our ink has a thinner consistency than the paste. The ink is a little more unforgiving when working with designs. We recommend using ink mats to help secure your project. Staining of the stencil may occur when using inks, however, this does not compromise the stencil.

Start by applying a small amount of permanent ink to your stencil. Using your squeegee, you will want to evenly spread the ink to your design until all parts of the stencil are covered. Remove excess ink and remove the stencil quickly. Wash the stencil immediately after use to prevent screen clogging & staining. After your project has completely dried- Allow ink to dry 24 hours (to prevent tackiness after heat setting), you will need to heat set the design with an iron on a medium setting with no mist. We recommend using parchment paper as a barrier between the iron and the design. Iron front and backside of design for 2 minutes each. If you’re using a heat press, set your machine for 305 degrees and press front and backside for 30 seconds. If using ink on glass dishware, place finished dishware in a cold oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes total.

When your project is completed, we recommend scraping the sides of the jar and gently clean the tops of the jars before tightly securing the jar lid. By keeping the ink jar rim clean and tightened when not in use, you will extend the life of your ink. Ink should be stored in a cool environment. There are many surfaces available for purchase from Magnolia Design Co, but you are not limited to those items. You can use most surface types paired with your design to make your very own creation. Some examples include; wood, mirrors, glass, ceramic, and fabrics just to name a few. When using porous surfaces, like glass or ceramic, you will want to fuzz the stencil prior to placing it on the surface to remove some of the stickiness. If you do not fuzz the stencil it will want to stick to the surface and will be difficult to remove. To fuzz your stencil, place the sticky side of the stencil on a tacky towel a few times to pick up fuzz.

After your project has completely dried, you will need to heat set the design with an iron on a medium setting with no mist. We recommend using parchment paper as a barrier between the iron and the design. Iron front and backside of design for 2 minutes each. If you’re using a heat press, set your machine for 305 degrees and press front and backside for 30 seconds. Allow ink to dry 24 hours (to prevent tackiness after heat setting)

When using ink on glass dishware, place finished dishware in cold oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes total, leave in oven until cool again. Allow ink to dry 24 hours (to prevent tackiness after heat setting)
