How do I prepare a painted wall for stenciling?
If the existing paint is in good condition and is the color you want, be sure the wall is clean and free of dust and grease. If the paint looks tired or you want to change the color, paint the wall with either latex or oil-base paint in an eggshell or matte finish. Two coats usually are required for an even finish. Flat paint is a fine surface for stenciling; if you are planning to glaze the wall before stenciling, use satin or semi-gloss paint.
