Stencil Honey - A New Name in the Game
I've got a new product in the shop here at Bloody Wolf Tattoo Supply I'm very excited about! It's called
🌟 Stencil Honey 🌟
And it promises to be a game changer!
If the packaging wasn't adorable enough to catch your attention, then the history and the product itself will be.
I'm proud to carry Stencil Honey in my shop, and I'm hoping you'll like it as well.
Stencil Honey was developed by Northern Ireland tattoo artists Tom Kerr & Darren Millar.
These two artists have been in the business for over 20 years, but they weren't happy with the stencil products currently available on the market.
Realism and hyper-realism tattoos are becoming more and more popular, and these types of tattoos, along with several other styles, require clean stencils that stick during a long sitting.
In order to outperform the products currently on the market, these artists trialed a lot of various tests and formulations before they settled on what they believe to be the best stencil product out there.
If you're used to using stencil creams, you'll notice Stencil Honey is a little different.
The consistency and color, of course, is different than your average stencil cream, but Stencil Honey also needs the skin to be cleaned with alcohol or a surgical spirit so there's no oils or soaps left on the skin.
Oils and soaps can interfere with Stencil Honey's ability to get the stencil where it's supposed to stay.
Here's the official instructions directly from the manufacturers:
- Clean the skin with green soap or similar
- Wipe the skin with alcohol or surgical spirit
- Apply Stencil Honey to the area (do not over-wet)
- Allow to become sticky or tacky in consistency
- Apply stencil
- Leave stencil on for 30 seconds
- Remove stencil and gently pat the area dry with a paper towel
- Let the area dry for 10 minutes
Stencil Honey is great for long sessions, but it works just as well for short sessions too.
I've given some to local artists to get their feedback and I've gotta say we used it the WRONG way first. We didn't read the instructions, and that's on us 😭
But our mistakes could save you some frustration!
What we didn't do was clean the skin with alcohol. Our local artists used green soap, Dr. Bronner's, and other soaps, then they wiped it with a paper towel and applied the Stencil Honey.
After a moment of wondering if I'd started carrying a product that wouldn't hold up to the standards of my shop, I headed for the Stencil Honey website and found the instructions.
Re-trials proved successful! 👍
The packaging is also very easy to use, both the bottles and the packets.
We have Stencil Honey samples here at the shop if you'd like to try before buy. Just ask my awesome salespeople Chris or Missy for a sample, and they'll be glad to hook you up.
