Transfer tape is not just for vinyl!!! You can use it to make stencils for painting. I have a quick video showing you how to use the transfer tape as a stencil. You will have to excuse the videographer though, my 8 year old really wanted to help, so its a little shaky!! Below I will give you a quick step by step, including the products that I used to make this sign.

You may consider a light layer of acrylic medium to seal the border and prime your surface. Spray paint is also a better option for stencils. This will create much cleaner lines.
