I didn't read the description clearly, so I thought these were plastic stencils. That's truly my fault. I do, however, think these thick cardboard paper stencils would be wonderful for stamp inking, but not for molding paste as you wouldn't be able to clean them afterwards. These are a great value for what you get.
I would purchase these again if my current set became ruined over time with regular use.
As with most things Faber-Castell, the quality of their stock is wonderful. Granted, this is not a plastic stencil but for it being more cardboard, it holds up pretty well with painting. For me, I used this with texture paste/modelling paste which did not wipe off the stencil easily and there will always be some remaining. I can't just toss it in the bin of water while I continue working. Now that I know this really isnt the best for that particular method, I actually DO LOVE this for painting/stenciling. It's really worth the money because they give you TEN incredible stencils in one pack! YES Recommended!
Love that there are 10 stencils in the pack. The designs are perfect for mixed media. The only drawback is the material - not sure how long they will last. I sprayed them with acrylic sealer, hope that will help.
