Wood is the trickiest thing for me to paint on. I used adhesive for my stencil so it didn't slip and made sure the brush was not super saturated like someone said earlier. I also use the circle sponges that come on a stick. You can get them at Walmart or Michaels. Again, do not put too much paint on. Also, the eraser on a pencil works for smaller dots.

If you get the circle up there you can always go back in with a second coat and an angled paint brush works better for me.

Practice also helps!! At least it helped me!!

I used the circle dobbers with just a little paint on all of the surface of it then dob it. Then take a paint brush and smooth out the bubbles. The dobbers come in different sizes too. Here is the one I did recently....

I got these polka dot maker things at Michaels or Joanns... cant remember which. They were in the paint brush section, they have a pink handles and look like paint brushes but there are little foam things on the end and they make perfect polka dots! I think I got a set of 4 different sizes for like $6.99?

I'm in Australia, and I use a stencil paint that is really quite dry - the only way I could describe it is it's similar to a moist eyeshadow or rouge compact (not the powder type) If you were to turn it upside down it would stay in as it has a minimal moisture content. Hope that makes sense! The stencil paint is actually designed for stencils, so you dont get that bleed, and you use those big round but blunt brushes that that you tap over your stencil, not wipe. You can take the stencil off straight away, if you wanted to (carefully) and let it dry. You dont get any bleed. I'm sure you would be able to buy the pots in any craft store. I've seen them in actual paint stores too before. They last a long time too.
Hope this helps
Karen

Actually, just thinking (yeah, I know it hurts!) you could airbrush them too. Not using the really expensive system with a compressor, but I think there's blow airbrushes at craft shops too. We used to use them at school. I know you can get toy ones for kids at toy shops, but I dont know what thaey would be like. Just an idea.... Could be good for other things as well.
