Clean Boards

Clean and wash all boards, especially if you plan on displaying them indoors. Let them sit overnight or until thoroughly dry.

Prepare Stencils

Assemble your stencils. Wood or mylar stencils both work well with the sprayer. Position the stencils on the board, masking off any areas you wish to keep free of paint.

Tape Around Stencils to Protect from Overspray

Use painter's tape and 3M Tape and Drape to protect areas surrounding your stencil. Layer tape so that edges are sealed and protected from any overspray.
