Spray entire wooden tray with Krylon Interior/Exterior Flat White (51502) to prime the surface. This will give a good base and even out any imperfections in the wood so that the rest of the colors will be more true to color. Also, it keeps the wood from absorbing all the color.
Spray entire base/flat part of the tray lightly with Krylon Interior/Exterior Blue Ocean Breeze (51512). Keep layers thin and let dry thoroughly. Then re-spray lightly, letting it dry in between coats. Continue this process until you feel you have an evenly coated base. Note: Since you are spraying a flat surface, you have to spray lightly and keep the can moving as you do not want to spray too much in one spot. Let dry completely.
Before spraying the sides of the tray, cover the base by cutting a piece of newspaper, recycled paper or construction paper the size of the base of the tray. Tape off the four edges with blue painter’s tape so that it is flush with each side. You are trying to create a clean line between the blue and the gold you will be spraying on the sides.
Spray the entire rim of the tray, inside and out, with Krylon Gold Metallic (1706). Let dry completely.
Use the scroll stencil and lightly trace out the design with a pencil. Remove the stencil and fill in with Krylon 18kt Gold Leafing Pen (9901) which will create the design on the flat part of the dray.
To add more dimension to the gold, you can create a shadow by tracing a thin line, along the bottom edge of each shape using a black permanent marker.
