This doesn’t mean your stencil is going to look bad. In fact, we have a few steps and magic techniques to help you achieve the best possible outcome with your stencil.
We are simply telling you that when crafting, if things don’t go on perfectly, don’t be too hard on yourself! Handmade items always have such great character….and at the end of the day, we are alway our biggest critics!
Board cut to size (for your sign)
Paint for surace of sign
Paint for letters or design on sign
(2) Foam paint brushes
Exacto knife or a sharp instrument
This sounds like a big list, but chances are you will have most of these things sitting around the house.
Your stencil should look something like this.
Paint over the words on your sign with the exact same color you used on you board surface.
Mine is white in this demonstration.
**A thin layer is optimal! The thicker you paint this layer, the better chance you have of “peeling paint” when removing your stencil.
