What is a template or frisket?
A template is a shield which consists of an edge that can be stenciled to create a design, such as a large, curved piece to form hills or mountains. When used in this context, a template is also called a frisket. Many pre-cut stencil designs include templates or friskets. You can create a template by cutting a piece of a 5" x 8" index card or stencil blank material to the shape you need.
How long does it take projects painted with Leather Studio™ paints to dry?
Allow all Leather Studio painted project surfaces to dry at least 24 hours before using.
What is a translucent stencil print?

How shall I clean my cured Leather Studio™ paint projects?
Completed and cured Leather Studio projects can be washed lightly wiping over the painted surface with a moistened cloth using mild soap and water.
What is an opaque stencil print?
An opaque stencil print is a stenciled out image of the design with intense color build-up and without shading or tone variance. This style of stenciling is very effective with bright or primary colors.
How should I apply Leather Studio™ paint to my project surface?
Squeeze a small amount of Leather Studio™ paint onto a foam plate or disposable palette. Using a soft bristled paintbrush or foam brush, apply paint using long, smooth strokes applied in the same direction; starting along the edges. Work quickly and do not try to get perfect coverage with the first coat.
Overworking the strokes as the paint is drying will cause the strokes to drag pulling color off of the surface. Let paint dry for at least one hour or until it feels dry to the touch before applying additional coat(s).
How should I apply Leather Studio™ paints?
When painting vinyl and leather surfaces with Leather Studio paints, a thin application of paint is best.
