INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Lightly sand over the entire wooden sign. Wipe down with a clean rag to remove any dust particles.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Measure each of the slats of the sign. Use a Silhouette electronic cutting machine to cut out the provided files, making words big enough to fit the slats.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Place transfer paper over the top of the vinyl letters. (The transfer paper helps to keep the letters/stencil lined up and makes for easy transfer to the surface.) Peel off the back of the vinyl making sure all pieces (i.e. inside the A & R) are stuck to the transfer paper. Attach the vinyl stencils to the sign.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Paint in the stencils using desired colors.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Let the stencil dry briefly. Pull off the vinyl, being careful not to smear the paint.
    Step 4 Example

HELPFUL HINTS

Dabbing the paint in the stencil areas creates cleaner lines than does using brush-strokes.
