I showed you last week how I made a logo for the rear window of my car. When I weeded that vinyl, I was left with a negative piece.
To keep it safe, I removed it from the slick paper, then set it aside with the sticky side up. I then removed the oodles and boodles and placed them on some slick paper while I worked on the logo for the car.
I do stenciling all the time, so I simply picked this up from where I laid it, and placed it on the board, then I replaced all the oodles and boodles. I didn’t use any transfer tape.
I have a better way to stencil now! You can see a video with my step by step instructions in my post Repurposed Pallet Coffee Cup Rack.
My method of choice is daubing with a sponge applicator. I find it works best for me.
Pretty much as soon as I get finished daubing, I remove the negative portion of the vinyl.
Then I let the oodles and boodles dry slightly before I remove them with the Silhouette pick. I use to use tweezers, but their pick is so much easier!
Now I have a great sign to use at my shows. It looks huge in this picture—it is long, but it’s only 5.5 inches wide.
