This is a good thread Tim, picked up a couple good pointers.

Is there a recommendation for altering the stencil to make it easier to pull up? That’s the part I’m not fully grasping. Perhaps cutting it into 3 smaller sections to lift instead of one huge stencil?

How did you do your touch ups again?

Quoted from EMsInKC:

Not Krylon or Rustoleum. Montana is a good starting point.

I've heard good things about Montana paints as well. They have some pretty crazy lines for getting unique effects.

Have you ever used their varnish for clearcoating a cabinet? I've heard some people get good results with this stuff as a final stage after applying your satin sheen base coats.


They also make a spider effect can apparently, among other products.

Quoted from gamestencils:

When it comes to stencils, forget rattle cans and all that jazz. Use a two stage automotive paint, typically I use PPG shop line. Just use the right kind of paints and all these issues people keep experiencing go away.

Yeah. And I didn’t feel like investing in a huge air compressor tank, a proper spray gun, expensive automotive paints, a proper ventilated spraying area, proper body protection, etc etc. Not everyone has the means to do that, nor the space, etc. Especially if this is your first restore.

People have gotten good results using the rattle can methods with stencils. That’s what I’d like to hear.
