This stencil is made out of 7mil blue translucent plastic. With proper care you should be able to use the stencil several times on many different projects. If you need even thicker material, just drop us a note and we'll be happy to accommodate that for you.
Have fun with any color combination, and use any type of paint you are comfortable with. We generally do recommend acrylic paint since it holds together better than water based paints for instance, and it tends to dry quickly. Fabric paints are also a fun way to permanently stencil some fun designs onto clothes, pillowcases, and burlap projects. Walls, floors, wood furniture, and clothes surfaces are all fair game for your DIY stencil projects.
