How To Project: Stenciling on a Glass Surface

Ever wonder how to get started on using Cutting Edge Stencils on your windows, mirrors, or any other glass surface in your house and home? Here’s how to create this beautiful room decorating idea!:

Be sure to first CLEAN the surface of the glass! You can use rubbing alcohol, a vinegar and water solution, or a glass cleaner to get rid of all the grease and dirt. You may also want to wear latex gloves while painting to avoid smudging the glass with oils from your fingers. Paint sticks much better to clean surfaces!

Paint Types:

You can use several different kinds of paint when stenciling on glass! The following are all durable paint products meant to withstand light hand washing with water and soap; do not scrub!

Other Helpful Tips:

1. Whether you decide to paint your stencil with a dense foam roller or stencil brush, make sure that the applicator you use is completely dry. Any water added to the paint can mess with the adhesiveness of the paint!

2. Don’t overload your applicator with paint! You can always use several coats of paint after the priors dry. Otherwise the paint will bleed!

3. Wait until the paint is somewhat dry to remove the stencil. If you notice a smudge or mistake, use rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip to remove the unwanted enamel or acrylic paint!
