What are Stencils:
A stencil is a stiff sheet of material with a design or image cut out of it. Our re-usable stencils have “tags” in them to make sure all the necessary parts stay together, you can always paint over these after applying the stencil to give a clean finish to your project. When you apply ink or paint to stencils, the design is printed on the surface below.
How to use Stencils:
– Measure and tape your stencil or stencils to your project with masking tape when you are happy it is centered and in the right position. – Use a Stencil Brush (also available in our shop) to apply paint lightly over your stencils. Make sure there isn’t too much paint on your brush by tapping it on a paper towel before tapping it on your stencil. – Use tapping motions for the best results.
How to clean Stencils:
Cleaning your stencils are important to keep them lasting longer. Be careful as they are delicate and some details may break if you are too vigorous with your cleaning. Try to not let the paint dry on your stencils before cleaning, it will just make it a lot easier. If the paint does dry, you will need to soak the stencil in warm soapy water for a bit to soften the paint. Using a brush or sponge lightly wash your stencils with warm soapy water, then tap it dry with a paper towel. Make sure to store them laying flat to make sure none of the details bend or break.
Stencils also available in our craft shops as well as our stockists.
