Introduction

You can practice your technique or test out a color by first making a sample print on paper or scrap fabric. Use a straight edge and pencil to draw a guide line, if applicable. 

steps

  1. Place stencil on your surface and secure using tape.

  2. Pour a small amount of paint onto your palette; load paint sparingly on a stencil brush and dab off excess. Lightly dab on a thin layer of paint; apply a second coat if necessary.

  3. While craft paint is still wet, carefully peel stencil off.

  4. Let the paint dry completely before placing another stencil (or color) over it.
