instructions

  1. Tape off stripes in the bottom corner of your frame. Apply stencil paste to your squeegee and drag it over the open areas. Rinse off your tool in between colors.
  2. Cut out a piece of foam core to fit inside your frame.
  3. Cut out and arrange your stencils onto your foam core.
  4. Squeeze your stencil paste onto your squeegee, and apply the paste to your stencil by dragging the squeegee over your stencil. Replenish your squeegee with more paste if needed. Rinse off your squeegee in between colors.
  5. To achieve an ombre look with your stencil, double load your squeegee and drag it across your stencil like you would normally. Keep dragging with your double loaded squeegee to blend.
  6. Remove your stencil from your surface while the paste is still wet.
  7. Wash your wet stencils with warm water to reuse.
