Painting techniques day 14
There are all sorts of stencils: metal, plastic, freezer paper, plain paper, tape and many more. This is a simple stencil that I have been making since this product, Avery Note Tabs, was first introduced. As a matter of fact I have a step by step tutorial on making them here.
I can only find one of the many I made because the bookcase they were adhered to collapsed under the weight of all my books (smile). I know I put them somewhere...
I made another spiral which is one of my favorites.
This is my round pouncer. I have these in three sizes. I bought them at WalMart and I am still using the same few after all these years.
They leave a nice clear edge and even after washing MANY times, the sticky back keeps sticking.
