Wall Different is a tool used by thousands of graphic designers to transfer stencils from one wall to another. In this article, I will describe how to transfer wall decals and other artwork. It is pretty straight forward, but there are a few things to keep in mind that will make the process go much smoother.
Have The Right Tools
You can transfer a stencil up to 20 feet away. If you want to move artwork, then you need to leave enough room between walls to do it.
Different stencils require different tools for application. The tools you need for transfer should match the stencil you plan to transfer. That means it’s essential to make sure you have the right tools. If you’re transferring a stencil, you don’t need any special tools or devices. If you want to transfer artwork, then you need to make sure you have a wafer peeler, laser cutter, and the appropriate tools. Don’t be intimidated by these tools because they aren’t that hard to understand.
Identify The Wall Shape
Now, the first thing you need to do is identify the wall’s shape you’re transferring the stencil from. If you do not know this information, skip to the next step.
Use The Laser Cutter
Now you’ll use your laser cutter to cut out the shape of the wall. You may also need to use a guide to ensure you get a clean cut. After you’ve transferred the stencil, you can remove it from the wall. Carefully mark where you want to cut so you can see how to set and transfer it again.
Now you can start to peel off the stencil off the wall. There will be little streaks as the stencil peels, but this is normal. You need to smooth this out with a piece of masking tape.
Transferring The Artwork
Transfer your artwork by placing it on the stencil and using a nail gun. Either you can glue the stencil onto the wall, or you can use a staple gun or stencil clamps to attach it.
Now that you’ve removed the stencil, clean off the area, and begin applying your new stencil. Make sure you clean up any mistakes before using the new stencil.
Wall Different : The Final Step
The other thing you need to do is apply a coat of the paint and allow it to dry before you begin to implement the new stencil. It is an excellent time to remove any paint that you may have missed in the first step.
Install the new stencil on the wall and do any finishing touches like nails or caulking. You can trim corners here if you want. Remember, the more stencils you apply to it, the more room you have to move from one wall to the next.
Transfer stencils to other surfaces using Wall Different. After you transfer, you can reapply your stencils on other walls.
