Painting Techniques: To basecoat, apply a total opaque (solid) coverage to desired surface. Two thin coats are preferable to one heavy coat; lightly sand between coats if needed and wipe away dust with soft cloth.
To stencil, use masking tape to hold stencil in place. Cut sponge from stencil buddy into smaller pieces. Use a different piece for each color of paint.
Put a small amount of paint onto palette and dip sponge, secured to stencil buddy handle, into paint and dab off excess on paper towel. Apply to stencil, lightly dabbing around openings working toward center.
Shade using darker colors by dabbing only at base of flower, etc. and working lightly out to top edge. Repeat with other paint colors, moving stencil as needed.
Lightly sand stool and wipe away dust with soft cloth. Basecoat with Butter Cream.
Paint edges of legs with Wild Rose and edge around top with Purple Smoke.
Place large flower motif along one edge of top. Stencil flower with Sachet Pink and shade with Wild Rose. Stencil leaves with Oasis Green and shade with Rainforest Green.
Move stencil and repeat around top of stool. Move stencil down to each leg and repeat leaving off leaves on very ends of design. Stencil small tulip design with Purple Smoke as shown.
