How To Stencil:



Ordering From Our Website:


Where to Buy:
If you are interested in purchasing a stencil from us, please visit our website.


Actual Size of Stencils:

We are asked this question often so I hope this clears up how we design our stencils.  The product size specified on each page is the actual size of the clear mylar stencil.  Each design is a small degree smaller than the actual size.  Usually about 1/4 to 1/2 inch smaller.  We can change the design size most often when asked to do so as needed.  Costs vary - depending upon the size changes needed.


Wholesale Inquiries:

Tools for Stenciling:
Brushes
We use these for painting on wood signs and burlap fabric. Most art stores will carry stencil brushes.
We buy ours at Michael's, JoAnn's or Wal-mart.

Stencil brushes are specialized brushes. Designed for stenciling, they have a flat tip rather than rounded, and are used with a 'dabbing' motion to apply paint or ink to the open areas of a stencil. Regular brushes are not as effective as they are designed to brush paint on, which can push paint under the edge of a stencil, and the head is rounded which causes the bristles to spread out when 'dabbing'. So get a set of 5 stencil brushes for a few bucks and have the right tool for the job.

Paint Rollers


We use these for painting on fabric such as cotton T-shirts or walls. In order to achieve the cleanest edge possible, we recommend using a smooth / semi-smooth 4" foam paint roller. Before applying the paint, remove any excess paint from the roller and use light pressure when applying the paint. We buy ours at Wal-Mart.

Paint


Our favorite to use is FolkArt Brand - It is a bit thicker than most craft acrylic paint. We buy it at Michael's, Jo-Ann's, or Wal-Mart.
