HOW TO STENCIL:
Stencils can be used for wood signs, furniture or on fabrics such as pillows. Stencils should be used with ONLY water-based paints - milk paint, chalk paint, and Fusion mineral paint are great choices, but you can also use any water-based latex paint.
Please be careful not to tear any of the edges or letters of the stencil. Also, return the stencil to us uncleaned and in the plastic sleeve.
Here are a few stencilling tips:
Use painters tape to hold down your stencil and keep it in place as you work.
Use a flat bottom stencil brush or foam brush to paint with. Triangle makeup sponges work really well for stencilling.
When stencilling, your brush or sponge should have very little paint on it. Dip it lightly in paint, then dab the brush onto a paper plate or paper towel to remove some of the paint and make the brush quite dry.
Use an up and down dabbing motion as you stencil. Stencil one coat for light coverage or let dry and stencil a second coat for heavier lettering.
Let dry a few minutes, then remove stencil carefully. If you have any bleeding, let the paint dry fully then use a razorblade to clean up any bleeds.
If desired (for wood signs), sand lightly using a fine grit sandpaper to create a distressed look.
