JRV Stencils are made in America and are designed by Jami Ray Vintage. JRV Stencils are 15 mils thick compared to other stencils that are 3-5 mils thick. In fact, even special order stencils are usually only 10-12 mils thick. With JRV Stencils you can stencil with paint as well as with textured mediums. JRV stencils hold up use after use down to the intricately cut details.
