I have a dresser I want to add some stenciling on - but how do you get the stencils to stick without pulling off the paint below?  I can tape the stencil edges but I'm worried about the 'inside' and paint leaking under.

Thanks!!! Huh

there's that spray temporary glue, but I am always wary to use it because it has a label on it about california possible known cause of cancer .. you know that warning?  i bought some of that spray glue once and I never used it after I read the whole label.  If you figure out something, let me know, I have a stencilling project on hold because I don't want to wreck it with stencil-bleed.

You could lay down painters tape and carefully use an exacto knife to remove the part of the stencil that will be painted, if you use a little clear nail polish around the edges of the painters tape it will prevent bleeding.  Then when the paint is dry carefully remove the tape.
