Multi layered stencils or stencil overlays can be used to paint one colour on top of another with even greater results. It's amazing how a simple design can be transformed into something very impressive, and you don't need to be an artist, just follow our simple steps below. We're going to use The Stencils Studio's 4 layered Michael Jackson stencil for this tutorial but the principle is the same for any number of stencil layers. Layer 1 Start with the background layer, Stencil layer 1. Layer 2 Use the positioning marks on the stencil (not shown) to correctly position the stencil sheet over the previously painted silhouette, choose a different colour, in this case grey, paint the stencil then remove. Layer 3 Repeat the process, it's important to wait for the paint to dry between applying each layer.

Step 1: First, start the LeoCAD application. You should see a window that looks like this: LeoCAD presents a standard graphical user interface: a titlebar, menus, and toolbars at the top; a status bar along the bottom; and a workspace with tool-windows in the center. Step 2: Start the model by adding a blue 1x4 plate.
