I am puzzled as to why you guys are taking the stencils off while the paint is wet/setting? I have made my own vinyl stencils for the three cabinets I have done and I have found that keeping the paint application as light as possible and letting it fully dry before removing the stencil gave me the best results. When removing my stencils I lift a corner slowly and as parallel to the surface as practical until I reach an opening. I then slice the stencil so I can work pulling along only one edge at a time. I can see how if the paint was heavy, it would tear an edge this way so a light paint application becomes SUPER important with this technique. Maybe the vinyl Jeff uses forms more of a paint bridge, thereby necessitating wet removal? Or maybe there's some other reason (like figuring that too many customers would apply too a heavy coat of paint to allow dry removal)?
