A calming work environment Protection for your work environment and you (newspapers/apron/etc) Cup of water or sink to clean brushes Paper plate or other surface for paint Painter’s tape Tweezers or pin Patience (paint needs to dry!)
1. Paint wood using the sponge brush with your background color & let dry. Paint another coat if desired and let dry. 2. Before applying stencil, rub the stencil with the scraper to transfer it from it’s backing to the transfer tape. 3. Carefully remove stencil from its backing, making sure the little pieces (like middles of “o’s”) come up with it. If they do not, lay stencil back on it’s backing and rub your finger on the piece not transferring. 4. Carefully line up and lay stencil lightly on wood sign until you get it where you want it. 5. Run palm over stencil and use the scraper ( I recommend using the corner) to rub over entire stencil, focusing on the edges of negative parts (the words & design cut out of the stencil). 6. Rub again with scraper because it doesn’t hurt to do so! 7. Carefully lift corner of transfer tape from stencil and slowly peel it away. Pay attention to any parts of the stencil coming up with it. If that happens, lay transfer tape back and rub again with scraper. 8. Once transfer tape is removed, use your finger to rub the negative edges again to make sure there are no air bubbles in the stencil. 9. Paint the stencil with the BACKGROUND color (if your wood is white, paint the stencil white). Best method is to dap paint all over stencil with the sponge, and then spreading it out evenly. This is just a precaution to insure there is no bleeding. Let dry. 10. Once dry, paint the stencil with your design color. Dab paint all over and then spread it evenly. Let dry. 11. Add another layer of your design color if you desire. Let dry. 12. Once paint is COMPLETELY dry, lift stencil from wood by the corner slowly. 13. Use tweezers or a pin to remove middles of letters. 14. Use detail brush to fix any bleeds or blemished. 15. Go crazy! Paint your own design on it, distress it by sanding it, or leave it as is. 16. OPTIONAL: Spray or brush on a clear layer of sealer or poly. (Satin or matte finish recommended) Let dry. 17. Hang it up! Admire your work. Pat yourself on the back.
