Our Reusable Stencils feature really important qualities necessary to the safety, durability, and application of the painted games. Your volunteer painters will have a lot of questions about the planning, application, and use so we’ve tried to cover all their concerns. These quality features include:
Durability: Our stencils are made of a thick, commercial grade material that is semi-rigid and durable. Depending on how well they are maintained, and following some of our tips, like chalking out the lines rather than going right to paint, they can be reused numerous times.
Paint Options: We recommend purchasing paint directly from us but you can purchase paint locally. The paint we sell is a high-quality, commercial-grade Sherwin-Williams paint, made specifically for pavement, contains a special anti-skid additive, and is tinted to match the colors displayed on our site. We include supplies as well such as brushes, rollers, trays, cups, etc. We also offer spray paints, which includes cans of spray paint only, in colors similar to those shown on our site.
Application Instructions: All of our Reusable Stencils include illustrated application instructions, and includes information about how many people are needed to paint and how much time is needed. We provide some ideas on patterns but many of our Reusable Stencils can be applied in a variety of ways.
Game Ideas: All of our Reusable Stencils include activities and game ideas that can be used to explain how to use the games or provide a framework for children to create games and activities of their own.
Maintaining Your Stencils: Our Reusable Stencils features a thin film coating that can be used during painting, peeled and removed after application to make clean-up easy. We provide additional information on maintaining and cleaning your stencils with every purchase.
Planning Resources: Visit our Recess Resource Center for information and ideas on how to plan your playground painting project, or you can order planning services by contacting us at (800) 681-0684 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Storage: Smaller stencils can lay flat for storage. Larger stencils should be stored rolled up, taped and placed on end or on their side. Storage instructions are provided for each set.
