Americana® Multi-Surface Acrylics

  • Steel Grey (DA538)

Other supplies

  • water container

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Remove from the pillow from its pillowcase, if applicable. (If you are using a pillowcase, be sure to put wax or freezer paper in between the layers so paint does seep through to the back.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Place the Americana Decor Nautical Knot Stencil over the pillow or pillowcase where you want it and use painter's tape to hold it in place.
  3. Load a cosmetic sponge with Steel Grey. Lightly pounce the entire stencil angled on one side; then turn to the other side and repeat the rope for borders.
