Do I have to use special paint to stencil?

In some situations "special" stencil paint is a great option as it is thick like cold butter and doesn't bleed like other paints can. However, as a general rule you can stencil with any paint you like! Acrylic paint is a good option especially when used with foam spouncers or makeup sponges. Just remember a little goes a long way and always dab excessive paint off on a paper towel before stenciling. Click here for some good basic instructions if you are new to stenciling. You can do it!
