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 colour at a time. Tape stencil in place. Work from the centre of each word out. Load a spouncer with desired colour 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.


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