Templates for our stencilling projects
1 If you’re not keen to cut up your magazine, use a photocopier to make as many copies of the templates as you need. Adjust the size as required for your chosen project. 2 Cut them out carefully with a craft knife; simply follow the black outlines – you can’t go wrong. 3 Acetate sheets work best for stencils as they can be re-used. They are available in different sizes; ask at your hardware store or craft shops such as PNA. 4 Cardboard is porous so it’s not the best option for a stencil as it may absorb some of the paint. If you want to use cardboard, spray it beforehand with a spray sealant before painting over it.
