Secure FolkArt Laser-Cut Painting Stencils to project surfaces with stencil spray adhesive (following manufacturer's instructions) or with stencil tape. Spray adhesive is the better choice for intricately cut or borderless Laser-Cut Painting Stencils. Be sure your stencil is flat and flush on your project surface to avoid paint run-unders.
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.
Gently remove the cut outs from the stencil by pressing on them. If they do not pop out easily, then use a craft knife to cut the area where they remain attached. After removing the cut outs, put them aside you can use the shapes for tracing templates.
