Tape the stencil firmly in place. Using a wedge sponge holding on to the long thin end, pat the large flat end into color. Pat excess off on palette, pat over the open images on the stencil, allow to dry and pick up stencil. Applying color too heavily will cause bleeding under the edges of the stencil. TIP: When stenciling using only portions of the design, it is easier to use painters or stencil tape to mask the open areas of the stencil that you don't want paint to use.
