Project Instructions

INSTRUCTIONS

Use a straight edge and pencil to draw a guide line, if applicable.

Remove backing from stencil and set aside.  Place stencil on surface.

Pour a small amount of paint onto your palette. Load paint sparingly on a stencil brush or sponge and dab off excess. Lightly dab on a thin layer of paint; apply a second coat if necessary. Paint all areas of one color on the stencil before moving on to the next.

While paint is still wet, carefully peel off stencil.

Continue painting areas of the stencil according to your design. Let the paint dry completely before placing another stencil (or color) over it.

Clean stencil with soap and water or Martha Stewart Crafts™ Brush & Stencil Cleaner.  Let dry. Attach stencil to backing and store.

CLEAN UP

Wash all stencils, brushes, and tools immediately after use before the paint dries. Use Martha Stewart Crafts Brush & Stencil Cleaner to remove dried paint. Repair torn stencils with transparent tape. Place tape on both sides of the tear and cut away the excess with a craft knife.

Tips

Practice your technique or check your color by first making a sample print on paper or scrap fabric.
