  1. When working on a large project, it is best to make paper copies of the stencil and lay them out in a pattern. Tape the copies to the surface until you have the desired layout.
  2. Paint headboard with two coats of Ink paint using the flat sash brush. Let dry completely between coats.
  3. Stencil the first section of Batik pattern with Wedding Cake paint; remove and replace the paper copies with the Batik pattern one at a time, stenciling as you go. Let dry.
