REUSABLE HIGH QUALITY MYLAR Our stencils are professionally laser cut in the USA from a high quality non-adhesive 10 mil mylar sheet material. They are semi-transparent and reusable. Mylar is superior to vinyl, as it’s durable and strong enough to be used over and over again. It’s also non-toxic, chemical resistant and food safe. 10 mil mylar is ideal for almost any type of paint, as well as for plasters where a raised or embossed effect is desired. Many professional artisans prefer to use 10 mil mylar as it’s strong and durable, but still allows for flexibility when using on curved surfaces. With proper cleaning, mylar stencils can be used over and over again. TIPS + TRICKS THE RIGHT TOOLS ARE KEY: Use a spray adhesive on your stencils and fully secure it to your project before starting. This will eliminate the risk of paint bleed below the finer details. Using a stencil brush will allow you to create textures such as an embossed effect. They also control pigment much better than regular brushes. USE AS LITTLE PAINT AS POSSIBLE: Apply an even layer of paint with a light and steady pressure. If you desire a darker color, wait until the first layer dries and then apply an additional coat. Applying too much paint at once can cause the stencil to bleed. SOAK AFTER USE. Washing your stencils with warm water and soap after each use will help preserve the stencil, allowing you to use it over and over again. Most dish soaps will do the trick. Avoid using ammonia-based cleaners.
