NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Iron the canvas tote surface flat, if needed.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Insert cardboard or waxed paper inside the tote to prevent the paint from bleeding through to the opposite side.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Using 1" painter's tape, create a square outline.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Using a 1" flat brush, apply a basecoat of Snow White to the outlined square.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Position the stencil in desired location. Secure with tape, if needed. (Shown: the chevron from the Between the Lines - Saloon Stencil) Use a stencil brush to apply Marigold. (If the stencil is not large enough, you may need to re-position it and align the stencil to complete the background.)
    Step 4 Example
  6. Position the monogram stencil as desired. (Shown: Between the Lines - Saloon.) Apply Heritage Brick using a stencil brush.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Using a small round brush, outline the square with Heritage Brick. Rinse brush. Let dry. Once dry, outline the monogram and chevron square with Lamp Black.
