I’ve done 5 cabinets using Pimp stencils. What I learned:

Spray several light coats as opposed to flooding the cab with a heavy coat. Thick wet paint doesn’t separate well from the stencil material and will cause messy edges and poor lines.

You don’t have to rush pulling the stencils if you do lighter coats that dry quickly. So don’t panic about time.

Gloss rattle can paint drys very slowly. Again light coats are especially important using gloss paint.

Most 80’s and earlier pins did not have very glossy finishes. Closer to a satin in my opinion.

For the best results, scuff down the paint job after a few days with 600 grit paper and clear coat(you can even use rattle can clear). I use a low gloss clear. This gives all the colors a uniform sheen and levels the stenciled paint edges.

Quoted from EMsInKC:

I've done quite a few repaints with Pimp stencils. Tearing paint isn't from too much paint. It's from cheap paint. Use high quality enamel and it won't happen.

I’m not familiar with this cabinet, but what are all those black smudges and streaks in white areas. Is that high quality enamel ?

Some sort of webbing I guess.
