Any ideas as to how to stencil on a curved surface?  We have these cardboard pillars and we want to stencil chinese dragons on them.  We made the stencils, but how do you keep it flat?  Some kind of tacky thing might work, but we just painted the pillars red and do not want to mess up the paint.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you could try a low-tack spray adhesive once your red paint has had a few days to "cure"

use overhead sheets to cut the stencils instead of card stock. They are very flexible and stay with a thin coat of spray adhesive.

The other thing you could do... I think... is use an overhead projector to project the image onto the pillar. Then draw around the edges onto the pillar and fill in with paint.
