  1. Practice your technique or check your color by first making a sample print on paper or scrap fabric.

  2. Place stencil on your surface and secure using tape. If using spray adhesive, spray stencil first, then place on surface.

  3. Pour a small amount of paint onto your palette. Load paint sparingly on a stencil brush or pouncer and dab off excess. Lightly dab on a thin layer of paint; apply a second coat if necessary. Paint all areas of one color on the stencil before moving on to the next color.

  4. While paint is still wet, carefully peel stencil off.

  5. Let the paint dry completely before placing another stencil or color over it.
