How do I use Boomerang Stencils?
You can use Boomerang Stencils for face and body art used via and for stenciling with sponges or kabuki brushes. For airbrush, use as you would with any other stencil. You can use tape to create a larger boarder to avoid over spray if needed. If you do not have an airbrush, use a small dry sponge or kabuki brush to pick up a thin layer of paint that has had some water added to it. Keep adding paint until it is tacky. Make sure that the paint is not wet and runny to prevent dripping under the stencil. Hold the stencil firmly to the skin and tap the paint into the spaces in the stencil until you have filled in the area you want to use. Carefully peel the stencil away from the face. You will get a nice clean impression of the design! You can load a sponge with a rainbow of colors by using a rainbow split cake and then stencil the design for an even cooler effect! Some face painters like using powders instead of water based face paints to avoid issues with getting the water paint ratio correct, though powders tend to smear if touched. Make sure that the base colors of face paint are dry before you put a stencil on top to add the stenciled layer. Clean with soapy water.
