Spray adheasive


Does anyone know a good removable spray adhesive for stenciling,
I am doing designs on an inside wall but can't get my stencils to stick to the wall ?
Any ideas greatly appreciated thanks

Could you explain the problem a little further?

How intricate are these stencils and how tight do they have to hold for you to brush or spray through them?

Something like repositionable 3M spray mount is not working?

I grew up with this stuff in the graphic arts industry and have the fried brain cells to prove it. Try a quart of one coat (not regular) rubber cement and get a pint of thinner for it at the same time. If art stores even still carry it, they will sell cute little jars with glue brushes inside too.

Anyhow, mix the cement with the thinner to the least offensive thickness you think might work and apply to the back of your stencil. Let dry completely and you should have one sticky stencil as tacky as you determined it should be. If it does not stick, recoat. Make it totally high tack! The rubber cement thinner will not hurt the paint if you let it dry and cure to be safe. Use it to get any unlikely pieces of rubber cement off the walls though.

Not to offend you, but if a stencil is not sticking to the wall, are you confident your your paint will? Can your prime this situation first?

3m super 77. Let dry for about 30 sec before you stick it. That will make it easier to come off. If you have a tough time peeling off heat up with an iron

I've done a good bit of work over the years with a faux decorator who did some complex multilayer stenciling. I only remember using blue tape to hold the sheets in place.

The stencils are done on paper and I have done multiple layers so i have to register them in the same spot.
Some have fairly fine edges and are done on both a4 and a3 paper I just want something that will hold down all edges tight but won't e a problem to get of the walls I don't want a sticky coat left on them.
Also I was thinking about using Acrylic paint and a roller do you have any suggestions for this thanks

My concern remains the same. If the stencils with a low tack adhesive will not stick I don't know what to suggest for paint.

What paint is on the surface now? Oil or latex.

It sounds like a fairly high gloss surface. You need to rough up, with fine grit sandpaper or chemical deglosser, the portions you plan to paint.

You can always let your paint cure and put a clear coat over everything to restore a uniform gloss to the wall.

I would suggest, once the surface is prepared, you use art store acrylic latex art colors if you can afford them.

The walls are acrylic I just wanted an adhesive to hold paper stencils on, but one that is easy to remove from the walls and doesn't leave a sticky print
