Ok, so you’re finished, and you lift the stencil, and everything is perfect except one (or two spots).
Don’t sweat it! It’s fixable! Grab a small paintbrush and give it a light touch up with the base color. No one will notice!
MEND THOSE BRIDGES
Bridges are the connectors (tabs) that hold the stencil together and give it strength. Without bridges, the graphic would be one big outline with no detail.
Some people like the bridged look and others don’t. It’s really up to you. Lettering or sayings sometimes read easier without the bridges.
After you have finished painting the stencil, grab a brush and fill in the gaps ( bridges), and Voila!
CARING FOR YOUR STENCIL
It’s important to clean and store your stencil correctly so that it can be reused across multiple projects, and provide a crisp line with each use. We’ve created a guide to cleaning and caring for your stencils.
