These things are ok about 7 or 8 times until you overspray em and the paint gets on the adhesive. Come on AP I figured you'd be able to create something durable and long lasting like your markers and such...unless there is a way to make them adhesive again, you guys should make a plastic ART PRIMO stencil without the adhesive like your born to kill sh*t one(APREPLY) 7 or 8 times in a row is pretty good. It's not a defect. They are designed for creating a perfectly clean stencil on a production wall without the need for holding it up. The adhesive is designed to stick lightly so it doesn't pull any paint off when you peel it off. Once the adhesive is no longer adhesive you can stick it up with tape like a regular stencil. As long as you take care of it, the stencil will last a long time.
