Tips & Tricks

  • I found that the sponge brushes created less bleeding than using a brush.
  • The small paint brush is better than the sponge brush for small and tight places.
  • Don't put too much paint on your brush.  This is fabric and it can/will bleed if you have too much.
  • If you are a lefty start on the right side
  • Hold stencil down with your hand around where you are painting to help minimize any painting where it shouldn't be.
