I've used Pebeo's Vitrea 160 paints for years. I love this stuff. When buying these paints, remember to get the thinner too. I use a stiff stencil brush with a dabbling motion to get even coverage. If bubbles appear, the paint is too thick or you've added too much water, but don't fret just let it dry a little and brush over it again. Have fun!!!
I used these stencils with my students to make Christmas cards, and they were so excited with the results, as was I. We also decided to make Christmas Thank you cards for them to send out of state relatives who sent them gifts, and they couldn't wait to send them out! How's that for getting kids to even do that? Normally it's tough just getting them to sign their names on one! They were used 100's of times, and are still in perfect condition!!
