FAQs

How do you shade a stencil design?
Shading is a simply a matter of building up a greater intensity of color in part of the cutout area, leaving other parts light. The shaded area is frequently around the edges of the design area. Shading can also be done with a different color, applying it only in the area you wish to shade, letting the first color show in other areas.
