• Acetate stencils can be used repeatedly. Apply dishwashing liquid on the stencil and, adding a little water, use the stencil brush to swirl it clean. Rinse and air-dry before storing.
• Card stencils become soggy after a few applications. You may need to cut several card stencils of the same design if you intend multiple applications.
• It’s important your brush isn’t overloaded with paint, as it can leach under the stencil and create blurry lines. A stencil outline should be sharp.
• Annie Sloan Chalk Paint can be used on fabric. Heat-set the design by tumble drying or, with a hot dry iron, use a pressing cloth over the design. Check if the fabric can be ironed or heat-treated prior to paint application.
