Before you stencil your mandala statement ceiling, measure the area you are going to stencil to determine the size that will look best. You can take a tape measurer or a ruler and tape off where the mandala ends.

Take your professional stencil brush and dip the tip into your paint. Swirl it around your plate, working the paint into the bristles. Then offload any excess paint onto a papertowel.

Add blue painter’s tape to the edge of your mandala stencil and apply it to the ceiling. Rolling a dry dense foam roller over your stencil will make it stick to the ceiling and ensure that it’s completely flat.

Mandala stencils are filled with different shapes. When stenciling, we recommend using our 4 piece professional stencil brush kit. It comes with 4 different size paint brushes that are perfect for any size opening. For this project, we used our Kindness Mandala Stencil.

    Gorgeous!


    I have another little hint. Scaffold would be best, but most of us don't have & can be expensive to rent. So next best thing when you have to work from a bed or other squishy surface is to lay a scrap of plywood or planks down on that bed to walk on. Not nearly as tippy & much safer as well as easier to work.
