Easy Stencil Creation

I've had success making my own stencils with 4ml painters plastic. 
There is even heavier weight plastic you can choose to use. 
They're lightweight, easy to clean & store. If you need them slightly stiffer, tape edges with heavy duty duck tape. 
Nice too since they're transparent, you can place over design and trace. 


 If you want to repeat your stencil designs, they're thin enough to use as a mask for silkscreens.

I have been using stencils with clients making their first art painting ....in an outdoor installation...and now to discover you can cut your own...thank you... and play with this intriguing technique. I love your first efforts. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Painters plastic- 4ml or heavier

To make the stencil really flatten to surface, spray with removable adhesive.
