If your initial coverage looks a little light, just keep rolling over the stencil in short back-and-forth strokes until you get your desired coverage, Makaeva says. "It is much better to start light and quickly build the opaque coverage, rather than press on the roller too hard right from the start and possibly get paint bleed underneath the stencil. You’ll very quickly get the feel for just perfect pressure."

Just reload the roller , flicking off the excess paint for the perfect consistent product.

No. 1 Rule of Stenciling: Do not overload your roller with paint, and always blot off excess paint onto a paper towel. "With the right amount of paint on your roller and right pressure there is usually no bleed at all and edges are crisp." Start rolling over the stencil with your loaded foam roller, applying light to medium pressure. If your initial coverage looks a little light, just keep rolling over the stencil in short back-and-forth strokes until you get your desired coverage, Makaeva says.
