Yes, you can, It is like using an airbrush to spray stencils. Be sure your stencil is in place good. Protect uncovered areas and spray. Sending you a link that will help you.

Yes, you can stencil with the Wilton Color mist spray, this is the first method I learned to do before learning to use an airbrush. I'm in the learning phase with the airbrush. The stencil came from here on CC.

When spraying the can, did you hold it at least 6-8 inches back from the stencil? With this stuff it can't be sprayed real close and no full blasts. Lightly press when spraying. Make sure you practice before putting on your actual project to gauge the best distance. It sounds like the spray can may have been held too close or maybe repeatedly spraying without letting each application dry in trying to achieve a sold color. I hope this helps. Best wishes!
