kitchen sponge, Q-tip, cotton balls...all may work as well!
I have tried a kitchen sponge but found the holes are much larger and I didn't like the outcome. My next attempt was to slightly dampen a Q-tip, smooth the fibers with clean fingers ( no lotion), and allow to THOROUGHLY dry before use. I haven't paid for a sponge brush since! Note: All cotton top swabs are not created equal, the extra pennies for name brand are well worth it.
In the past I've used one of those little cheap bristle brushes. I wrap a rubber band around the bristles and then trim the bristles. Easy to have a brush for each color for a project. Also, if you apply too much color you can put the stencil back in place and correct the color using the wall paint...just lightly tap until you are pleased with the result.
I have not done stencilling myself, but I am wondering if empty bingo dauber bottle tips might work ?
I saw these tips and holder on Amazon.
Use make up sponges.
You can use a small paint brush just wrap tape around the bristles first.
