See - that positioning and coating of the stencil? For a repeat
pattern? Wayyyyyyy too much work. ONE stencil (I love the idea
of www.wallwords.com) would be perfect. I've been tempted to
stencil "SIT - STAY!" somewhere.
Not all stencils are repeating patterns (your sit-stay, for example).
And, for those that are, you can buy or make more than one, to make
it more time effective.
You can also use spray adhesive on the back (take some of the tack
off by sticking it to a t-shirt or towel before using it on the
wall). That will secure it to the wall along the painted edges much
better than just taping the outside edges.
Also, just plain practicing with paint application will make the rest
of the tricks unnecessary. The reason paint seeps under the stencil
is because you're using too much of it or you're brushing instead of
dabbing. Or both.
