Cutting stencils

Yeah!!! I’m getting my GF tomorrow!!!
I have so many questions, I hope the community on here can help me out some.
I plan on cutting stencils for painting. Which material has been tested and works best? I may be using a stencil brush through them or spraying.

Any help will do.


Congrats and welcome to the forum!

Haven’t cut any myself, but there’s heaps of good info in some prior discussions. Here’s a shortcut to the search results (magnifying glass in the upper right):

The short answer is that it depends on the type of paint and the surface to be painted.

I’m sure that others will chime in with specifics…

Can’t wait to see what you make!


I get my stencil material from @smcgathyfay, who has excellent quality material for good prices, and can probably answer some of your questions.
