You can use just about any type of paint with our stencils, it all depends on which surface you are going to stencil on. We recommend using Waverly Chalk paint (for wood surfaces), which you can find at most Walmarts or a thicker body acrylic paint. See stenciling tutorials on our Facebook page!
We have a few key tips and techniques to help you minimize paint bleed and start creating beautiful signs in no time :) 1. Ensure your stenciling surface is smooth, if stenciling on wood sand your board before and after painting with a #220 fine grit sand paper. This will smooth out any paint strokes from your paint brush. 2. Master the Dry Brush technique; this is essential to minimizing or eliminating paint bleed altogether. Start by dipping your stencil brush or sponge in your paint (chalk paint is recommended) then off load most of the paint onto a paper towel. Almost no paint should be left on your brush/sponge! 3. Next use stippling method to stencil your design, which is dabbing your brush up and down against stencil openings, this will help prevent your stencil from lifting. 4. Use multiple thin coats of paint to darken any light area, then lift up to reveal your AMAZING finished project :) With a little patience and some extra love, you will be stenciling like a PRO before you know it!
