NOTES: Let dry completely between painting steps. Work on one rose at a time, allowing each section to dry before moving onto a new section and then onto another rose.

  1. Find a plain canvas container; any size will work. (Mine was 6.5"x 7.5" x 5.5")
    Step 0 Example
  2. Gather the supplies, including the Smell the Roses SoSoft Stencil.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Stuff the container with items to flatten the surface for painting. (I used books.)
    Step 2 Example
  4. Place the Smell the Rose stencil where you want the pattern to lay on the container.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Paint the leaves by dabbing Emerald (Metallic) onto the stencil with a sponge dauber. Rinse out the dauber and dry with a paper towel. Dab on some Aquamarine (Metallic) into the leaves for some added dimension. (See photo: I removed the stencil here just to show the variation in colors.)
    Step 4 Example
  6. For the buds on the stencil, dab on Pearl (Metallic).
    Step 5 Example
  7. Dab Pink Tourmaline (Metallic) onto the tips of the rose buds.
    Step 6 Example
  8. For one of the larger roses, dab on Amethyst (Metallic).
    Step 7 Example
  9. Use Raspberry Quartz (Metallic) to highlight the rose petals.
    Step 8 Example
  10. For the next rose, use a cleaned dauber to dab Ruby (Metallic) onto the stencil surface.
    Step 9 Example
  11. For the last rose, dab on Pink Tourmaline (Metallic) and then some Pearl (Metallic) as a soft highlight to the petals.
    Step 10 Example
  12. Use a liner brush to outline the bottoms of the petals shapes Obsidian (Metallics) to give the stenciled image some more dimension.
    Step 11 Example
  13. Using Obsidian (Metallic) and the small dauber, make polka dots in the empty space surrounding the stenciled roses.
    Step 12 Example
  14. With a clean liner brush, add some highlights on the petal shapes using Pearl (Metallic).
    Step 13 Example
  15. This project is a fun way to add a design to a plain container. Use the same design for a variety of projects.
