I actually do this a lot, I put cooking spray on my counter and put the hot glue on that. it peels off so easy😜 but I just tried to find something else so u could see it better

so just simply make a design with the hot glue on the pan!

hot glue is stretchy too once it dries, so if a stencil doesn't fit the whole page, just stretch it;)

or another way u can do this is to fill about a teaspoon of acrylics and some water into a spray bottle and mix. spray on stencil

I don't know if u can see that, but it's about an inch higher than the paint. put on the lid and shake!!!

you want it to be thick so u can't see the water. If u can see through it, there's too much water and it won't be very visible on paper

just spray with other colors and wait until dry😉
