Four Methods:PreparationFirst StencilSecond StencilFinal Product Stencil art has long been associated with graffiti and vandalism.

They provide finished work with clean lines and the ability to exactly replicate their design multiple times.

      Select the lighter shade of acrylic spray paint. Use the directions for spraying distance located on the can. If they are absent, err on the side of caution and start off holding the can far away.

      Spray the color over the stencil until you get the desired pigment. Some artists prefer dark, dripping stencils while others prefer a lightly misted imprint.
      • If you use tubes of paint instead of spray paint, use the stencil brush to apply as much color as you would like to the cut-out areas of the stencil.
