The compass is very versatile for giving your project a nautical theme. With our size options you can create projects that are small since we offer a 5″x6″ option or go very large with a bigger wall sized compass craft stencil.
Tips for painting Your stencil
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.
For ship every stencil in sturdy envelope with our logo hand sprayed on every package. For larger stencils they are rolled gently and placed in a 5″ square tube. We take pride in making sure every stencil is cut perfectly without any imperfections. Since we cut everything in-house we are able to come through on this promise every time.
We use official Mylar, 10 mil thick which is thicker than the 7 mil you’ll find at many other shops. A thicker stencil translates into an easier time for the person painting it. There really isn’t any case where you would need one to be thinner, this is why we only use the best material. We source our material in the U.S. which is only authentic Mylar brand material which is food safe and comes in the hazy or frosted color.
