I pulled out a likely looking one and it was sticky on one side, and I put it on my wrist.
At this point I was planning to put henna over it, to squish down and stain into the open areas, but the stencil wasn't staying stuck worth a damn, glue was going everywhere, and the thing just smelled nasty. So, though I should have put henna on, wrapped it, and left it there until it was dry and the skin was stained, I decided to bail out of an impending disaster. Honestly, I've never seen a stencil job that looked good, and there are far better ways to get henna on, even if you feel you can't draw.
In short, I gave up, and spent the next half hour trying every solvent in the house to get the glue off my arm. I have heard that these stencils are wonderful for stenciling wall patterns when you're repainting a room! That's probably a much better use for them.
