I have seen in videos recommendations for polyurethane water based sealant, has anyone use the one that says “crystal clear satin”?
Hi Lea – Yes the paint will need to dry before moving to the next repeat. However, the paint should be dry very quickly since we recommend using minimal paint and the offloading technique (shown in our tutorials). This thin layer of paint should dry enough to move on pretty quickly. We also like using blow dryers as additional help :)
I am planning on stencilling the Cheetah stencil on my wall tomorrow… can’t wait!
I just thought I would check, I already have my wall painted in semi-gloss paint and went to the paint Shop and bought black heymes paint (semi-gloss). Do I let it completely dry before removing the stencil? Any further tips will be very useful!
