Tips for Painting Your Stencil of a Compass

When painting your compass it’s crucial to make sure the stencil is placed firmly on your surface. Since the stencil has a lot of detail you want to be very careful if using spray paint to apply it. The stencil is designed to be very stable but it still needs to be applied carefully. A small paint roller works great for getting a clean result with the compass design. The compass also works great with the boat anchor and wave designs for creating a full nautical theme.
