tips for using mesh stencils

  • Be sure to smooth out all bubbles when applying stencils to your surface.  This will help avoid any “bleeding” of your paints.
  • Spread your paint or paste quickly and evenly. Avoid going back and forth which also causes “bleeding” of the paint outside of the crisp clean lines of your design.
  • If you do not have access to chalk paste or chalk paint; make your own with my DIY Chalk Paint Recipe HERE.
  • Wash your stencils well with warm water and a magic eraser as soon as possible after use in order to help them last for multiple projects.
