    HOW TO STENCIL

    Virtually any paint can be used to stencil with but the two most popular types are Acrylic and Dry-brush Oil.

    1. Always make sure that the surface to be stenciled is clean and properly prepared with no flaking paint.
    2. Spray the back of the stencil lightly with spray glue and position the stencil on the chalk line or registration mark.
    3. Dip your brush or sponge into the paint then, wipe off most of it on a piece of kitchen paper. If you use too much paint you will find that it bleeds behind the stencil, giving the pattern very ragged edges. Apply the paint using an up and down stippling motion, start on the outside of each of the stencils cut outs and work your way in towards the middle.
    4. Wash your stencil frequently in hot soapy water, especially when changing color. Don't forget to check for paint on the back of the stencil. To remove oil paint and glue from your stencils and brushes soak them in turpentine for a few minutes.

    STENCILS HAVE MANY USES

    They can be used on Walls, Floors, FABRIC, Glass, Wood, Cards, and almost any flat surface even Exterior walls.

    1. Always prewash fabric to remove size and softener. Tape the fabric to a table, so it doesn’t move and then apply the stencil as per normal; just put some extra masking tape around the edges of the stencil. This is partly to help it stay in place and in case you go over the edge with your paint (you can't get it out of fabric).
    2. Before you can wash the fabric, you have just stenciled, you must heat set it, this can be done with a dry iron (no steam). Allow the paint to dry for 3 days then place a piece of absorbent paper over the design and with the iron as hot as the fabric will allow, press for 10 seconds on either side.
