Tem­plates for our sten­cilling projects

Home Paint It - - CONTENTS -


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.
