Thats official, Ive tried it all ways, thicker, thinner, more craft mount, etc and its so hit and miss, one go will produce a lovely brick effect, all perfect, then the next 2 mins later will seep through and be a brick coloured mess! Iit says it has a long working period before going off, but i found it went really bad after a few mins, and was gloopy and sticking to the stencil! All I can say is thank God its finished and that I had just enough, as I dont want to order more!! Now I have to hide all the bad bits with paint effects so hope it works.
Im really dissapointed as I was hoping to buy a stencil to do the slate roof and another for the stone floor, thinking it would be an easier method, but NO WAY !!! I hate paper so going to have to think of using other methods for slating my roof, and maybe try the paperclay on the floor. Or I may just paper in a tile pattern and stain in to look old and dirty. But not this ever again!!!
I thought maybe it was just me that couldnt do it, so I got John to have a go and was sitting praying it wouldnt go perfectly for him so id look an idiot, but he peeled his attempt back and it looked just as awful as mine, so yipee its not just me!
