Step 1

Project Notes:

  • Before your start, practice your stenciling technique and check your color by making a sample print on a scrap piece of paper.
  • Have you stenciled before? It’s easy to do once you know the basics. Hey, look – here they are:
  • Remove your stencil by peeling it away from its clear backer sheet. Save the backer sheet – you’ll replace the stencil once you’re done.
  • Place the stencil onto your surface. Make sure it’s just where you want it, then press it into place.
  • Pour a small amount of paint onto your palette or a paper plate. Load paint sparingly onto your stencil brush, foam pouncer or dauber by dipping its bottom into the paint. Then dab off any excess paint.
  • Lightly dab a thin layer of paint onto your surface, until all the stencil’s open areas are covered. Apply a second coat, if you need to.
  • Work one color at a time, painting in all the stencil sections for that color before you move on to the next.
  • Keep going! Apply paint until all of the stencil’s open areas are filled.
  • While the paint’s still wet, carefully peel off the stencil. Wipe off any excess paint and stick the stencil onto its backer sheet again.


First, use a medium-sized flat brush to paint a base coat onto each coaster with Acorn paint. Let the base coat dry, then apply a second coat of Acorn and let it dry, too.

Step 2
Next, use a small, flat brush to paint the edge of each coaster with Copper paint, then let the paint dry.
Step 3
Pick out a leaf stencil and apply it to the center of one of your coasters. Stencil the design using a small dauber and Wedding Cake paint. Let the paint dry. Repeat to add a leaf stencil to each of the remaining coasters.
Step 4
That’s all there is to it! Make sure you wash all your stencils, brushes and tools immediately after using them, before any of the paint that’s on them can dry. Store your clean stencils on the clear backer paper.
