I checked these out today. They are really cute. I'm showing how much of a dummy I am here, but I don't do much painting or stenciling so I have no idea of what a stencil brush is.


I'm still working on the pumpkins for the last one LOL. They are a orangish color but I'm not satisfied with them, so gonna re paint them with a better orange color.

Minny you find stencil brushes in the craft dept. with the stencils and stencil paint. They come in different sizes. The brush edge is straight and if I remember right they are thicker than a paint brush. It will say stenicl brush on the package. I know I got some of those around here somewhere. Haven't even looked at them in about 10 years.

Thanks Sharon. I wouldn 't have had any idea of what to look for.

My pumpkins are almost finished.. I'm waiting on the paint to dry & I will post a picture in a little while.

Looking forward to seeing the pumpkins.

Amanda, Funny you should choose the ghost luminaries for craft project this time as I emailed you just today to ask about whether to paint inside or outside the jar. I am concerned about wearability on the outside and flame issues inside, maybe it isn't as big an issue as I think it is. I am putting mine outside and I guess that is why I have this question. I have been saving jars for over a year for this and have quite a few to do.

Katie flowers if you are going to leave them outside you can buy outdoor paint.It is sold with the acrylic paints at Wal Mart in the craft section.I have used it on stepping stones ans it is durable.

Minny you Pumpkin patch is very nice I like the way you put in the leaves.And stencil brushes are at Wal Mart also they are different sizes and they are round not flat like regular brushes

Can not wait to give the new crafts a try.
