HOW TO STENCIL
Basic stencil instructions are included with each purchase. Please visit our How To Stencil page for more detailed instructions and video tutorials.
LESS IS MORE!
The biggest mistake most people make when stenciling is overloading the brush or roller with paint. This will inevitably lead to paint bleeding underneath the stencil and causing blurry edges. You will be surprised how little paint is actually needed! Don’t overload paint onto the brush/roller and rub most of the paint off onto a piece of card before applying to the stencil. Practice first on some spare paper or card before attempting your project.
LESS IS MORE!
The number one mistake most people make when stenciling for the first time is using way too much paint, this leads to bleeding under the stencil, and no one wants fuzzy lines! It’s surprising how little paint you actually need. Apply a small amount of paint to your roller, and then roll off any excess paint on a scrap bit of paper/card. Your sponge needs to be touch dry, so paint only comes through when you apply pressure. The same applies when using a stencil brush. Practice first on some spare paper or card before attempting your project.
