Applying stencils

The Kreidezeit motives are selected in such a way that they can be set into the surface. If the motives are to be attached on a height, it is favorable to mark the baseline with weakly adhering adhesive tape (e.g. the violet of stork). During stenciling, the stencil is also fixed with weakly adhesive tape.

kreidezeit-naturfarben-instructions-applying-stencils-1Pasty inks are easier to apply for stenciling than low-viscosity inks. Very pictorial effects are achieved if the motif is not completely opaque, so that the background partially shines through. Paints are dabbed on with stenciling brushes or ring brushes – do not brush on.

Otherwise the contours become blurred because the ink runs under the stencil. It is helpful to dip the brush only slightly and to dab it off on a slightly absorbent surface, e.g. cardboard.
