Does spray painting a stencil do anything bad to strings instead of using stencil ink?

mmmm....it may stick some strings....as if you put glue....
maybe it could work nice as a string saver ;)

that's what I've noticed...they are a bit stickier than usual, and seems to have given the string surface a rougher texture, guess we'll see what happens. I'm playing tonight, so I'll let you know if I notice anything. BTW the string setup is poly mains/nat gut crosses @46 lbs.

Nothing wrong with spray painting stencils (including gut). That's how we did it 20 yrs ago. In fact I think the spray paint stayed on my strings longer than the ink blotter.

I played for 2 hrs. tonight and the spray painted stencil still looks great. I think my stencil ink days are gone...just a tip though, do the spray painting outside 'cause it kinda stinks.
