How To Stencil
Welcome to the wonderful world of stencilling!
Painting with stencils is actually incredibly easy. However, like with anything else, there are a few tricks of the trade that will help you achieve exceptional results.
1. A dry brush is key.
When you load your stencil brush with paint, ensure most of it is tapped off again. A cloth or paper will work. This is key in achieving crisp lines.
2. Tape stencil into position, then tap the brush up and down.
Another method you can try is swirling the brush.
Walk your fingers along the stencil, holding it down as you move along, to ensure it doesn't move.
You can also use stencil adhesive if desired, however my suggestion is to practice so you don't require it.
3. Remove the stencil as soon as your image is complete.
