FAQs

What is a translucent stencil print?
A translucent stencil print is a stenciled out image of the design that is lighter toward the center of the design with a shaded, more distinct outer edge. On some surfaces, the wall surface or texture shows through.
How can I center a stenciled word or phrase when stenciling one letter at a time?
It is always best to begin by creating a paper pattern. Trace each letter or word onto tracing paper checking your spacing between each letter and each word. Once you are happy with the design, use this paper pattern as your template to stencil directly onto your surface. It is best also to begin stenciling in the center of the word or phrase. Then continue stenciling outwards one letter / word at a time. Also be careful that each letter is completely dry prior to stenciling next to it. Do NOT lay a paper stencil over a wet letter/word.
How do I care for and store my Bucilla project?
To keep clean between seasons, wrap in white tissue paper and put in a cotton pillow case or cotton sheeting.
If item gets soiled, spot clean with a mild diluted dishwashing liquid. Lightly blot the area and lay flat to dry.
How do I stitch a straight stitch in cross stitch?
Straight stitches are stitched the same as the length of the line segment on the Design Chart.
Come up at A; go down at B. Pull flat. Repeat A – B for each stitch. Straight stitches can be worked in a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal direction.
How do you load the One Stroke™ script liner?
Thin your paint with water to an inky consistency. Load brush by rolling it in the paint puddle.
When the brush is loaded with paint, twist and roll out of the puddle.
How is the FolkArt Shortie Brush different from other paintbrushes?
Each FolkArt Shortie Brush is manufactured as a 1” wide flat brush containing 100% hog hair with flag tip bristles. Hog hair bristles offer the stiffness needed to work the Barnwood Tint into a raw wood surface and the flag tip bristles allow the brush to hold more tint.
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 does "dry-wipe" mean?
A technique used to clean the brush without rinsing it in water. Place your brush between the folds of the paper towel, press down and gently pull the brush out.
What is an opaque stencil print?
