INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Make sure the canvas is clean and dust free.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use a pen and the tracing & transfer papers to trace and transfer the frame pattern only to the center of the canvas.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a #12 flat brush and Calypso Blue to paint the outer perimeter, from the frame outward. (Refer to photo.) Rinse brush.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Use a #10 flat brush and Bright Orange to paint the frame. Rinse brush.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Use the 1-1/4" pouncer and Snow White to add random polka dots all over the Calypso Blue area. Wash pouncer. Use a #12 flat brush and Snow White to paint inside the Bright Orange frame. Rinse brush.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Place the 4" Quirky Monogram letter of choice in the middle of the monogram. (It makes it easier to line up.) Load a cosmetic sponge Bright Orange and pounce until the letter is filled completely. Wash stencil.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Use the same cosmetic sponge and color to pounce on two of the 3" letters of choice to complete the monogram. Pounce the letters until they are filled in completely. Wash stencils.
    Step 6 Example
  8. Let dry. Once fully dry, use a fine-point marker to outline the frame to make it really pop off the background.
    Step 7 Example
