    A friend came to me with a question and I’m hoping the Guild hive mind can help find a solution.

    The project: spray painting a logo onto sandbags made of cordura nylon.

    The problem: capillary action with the fabric is causing the paint to bleed and blur the logo (even with the lightest bit of spray).

    Does anyone have suggestions on how to treat the area of fabric prior to using the stencil, or suggestions on type of spray paint to use, or other products that might “seal” a portion of the nylon to allow for a crisp stenciled logo?

    Use a light tack spray adhesive on the back side of the stencil, and the material for the sandbags needs to be as flat as possible. They’ll likely have to use multiple stencils and re-apply the spray adhesive (depending on how many bags) to get the best results.
