Project Instructions

Step 1 Wash canisters with mild soap and water. Dry and wipe with rubbing alcohol.


Step 2 Select desired frame and letter stencils. Trace on paper to create a placement template.


Step 3 Work with one stencil and paint color at a time. Tape stencil in place. Work from the center of each word out. Load a spouncer with desired color and begin stenciling using a straight up and down dabbing motion until entire area is painted. Remove stencil; allow paint to dry before continuing. Repeat until design is complete.


Step 4 Once stenciled word is dry, stencil frame around the word. Allow to dry.


Step 5 Refer to FolkArt Enamel bottle for curing instructions.

Tips

Always let a stenciled section dry before placing another stencil over it to avoid smearing paint.
