We use 7 mil mylar; a plastic film that is heat resistant. Our stencils are thick enough to be strong and long lasting, yet thin enough to provide a seamless look in your art.
What You See is the Actual Stencil
The first image for all stencils/masks on the product pages are actual pictures of our stencils on a black background. The white area represents the mylar and the black represents areas that will accept paint.
You can use our stencils on fabric, canvas, paper, or walls with paint, texture mediums, wax, pencil, marker, or thread. Stencil Girl Products' stencils can even be used for encaustic painting! Because the stencils are heat resistant, you can clean them on your hot palette. Also use them for rubbings, or as templates for drawing, incising, or stitching.
Our diverse team of artists virtually guarantees that you will find the most unique designs available. We add new stencils to our lineup every month.
We love our customers and enjoy following their work online and seeing how they use our stencils. Simply use #stencilgirlproducts, #stencilgirl, or #iseestencilseverywhere and we will find you! We are active on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and YouTube.
We also have a wonderful group of people who participate in our monthly StencilClub and its private Facebook group.
As an industry leader, we take our responsibilities seriously and strive to provide education across multiple venues. You can find tutorials here on the website, on our blog, StencilGirl Talk, as well as on our YouTube channel.
Mary Beth Shaw made the decision to go ship "green" and recycle so that StencilGirl Products is a good environmental citizen.
