Apply Repositionable Adhesive to back of harlequin stencil.
Place cardboard sheet inside shirt and carefully fold excess fabric underneath. Press harlequin stencil firmly to upper center portion of shirt. Mask off areas you do not want painted with paper and painter’s tape.
Spray over stencil with Satin Nickel paint, then carefully remove and let dry completely.
Press floral bouquet mask over painted design and mask off any unwanted areas with paper and painter’s tape. Lightly and randomly spray over and around design with Rich Plum paint. Remove mask and let dry completely.
Apply Repositionable Adhesive to back of alphabet stencil, press over painted design, and mask off any unwanted areas with paper and painter’s tape. Spray upper left and lower right corners of stencil with Gloss White paint. Remove stencil and let dry completely.
Do not use printed newspaper or dyed paper as a masking material, as the colors may transfer onto project when painting.
It is critical to allow the paint the dry completely between paint and stencil applications, or the design may smear when the stencil is applied and removed.
To help protect fabric from paint overspray, place project on an old towel and bring edges up and around area to be painted
