Stencils – 50 Ways to Use Them

Jaime Echt from The Crafter’s Workshop shares a demonstration today on how to use one stencil in three different ways. Start with one great stencil, add sprays, molding paste, and watercolor paper and you’ll have three beautiful creations! We want to thank Jaime for her excellent demo on stencils.

The Paint Spot team went wild on stencils

Our creative team at The Paint Spot brainstormed over 50 ways to use stencils. Below similar techniques are gathered and matched with suggested materials to try.
