What are the dimensions of this Face Painting Stencil?
Stencil size: approximately 4" x 4.5" Ooh! Face Painting Stencils are laser cut onto flexible 7 millimeter Mylar.
How do I use this Face Painting Stencil?
This Mermaid Swim Flips Stencil is designed to be symmetrical, so you can turn and rotate the stencil to complete the design. Ohh! face painting stencils are great for both sponge work and airbrush. To use them with a sponge, simply load your dry sponge into slightly wet paint so that the paint is tacky and not too wet at all. Press the stencil against the skin firmly while patting down the paint with your sponge. The paint should be dry enough that it stipples gradually in the gaps to build up into a solid coverage. Make sure to always keep pressing firmly on the stencil right around the area you are applying the paint. You can do this by moving your fingers slowly across the outer edges of the stencil as you tap the sponge between them. Carefully pull the stencil up and away from the skin when you are done, and listen for the Oohs!
How do I clean my Ooh! Mermaid Swim Stencil?
Ooh! Stencils are durable and easy to clean. Rinse the stencils and then wipe clean gently with a wet cloth and let air dry. Make sure not to get your cloth or sponge snagged on the stencil since that can break or bend it.
What are Ooh! stencils best for?
Ooh! Stencils are great for adding detail to your designs. The Mermaid Swim Flip stencil is great for adding a mermaid to another design or can be used on it's own for a quick and easy under the sea design!
