Tips for Stencilling
This very delicate and finely/intricately cut stencil requires gentle stencilling. Stencil teasel heads with a nearly dry Stencil Sponge to prevent any bleeding, making sure you carefully work the paint into the slender teasel spikes. Avoid using too much paint to prevent paint build up and clogging the delicate stencil shapes. Gently wipe over slender teasel spikes with a stencil sponge during use to remove excess paint.
