technical question: once you've applied said 4 coats of red, does the thickness of the color then "fill out" the stencil up to the rim (hope you know what i'm talking about)? in other words: how thick is the paint layer after the final coat?

No problems at all Ully - already tested with Burgertime stencils (and remember ... the layers of paint are very thin)
