SUPPLIES

Americana® Stencils

  • Top 20 (12" x 12") (ASMM34)

DecoArt Media® Fluid Acrylics

  • Green Gold (DMFA14)
  • Medium Grey Value 6 (DMFA17)
  • Titanium White (DMFA39)

Other supplies

  • water container (separate from water for brushes)
  • palette or plastic plate
  • paper towels
  • 1" flat brush
  • cosmetic sponge
  • wooden frame

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix a 1:1 ratio of Green Gold and Titanium White. Using a 1" flat brush, coat the entire frame in the mix. Let dry completely.
  2. Mix a 2:1 ratio of Green Gold and Titanium White. Paint the center third of frame in the mix, blending into the lighter mix on top. (Use a cosmetic sponge if needed to help blend.)
  3. Apply Green Gold to the bottom third of the frame, blending into the Green Gold/Titanium White mix from step 2. (Use a cosmetic sponge again for blending if needed.)
  4. While the paint is still wet, dip fingers into clean water and splatter water onto the frame. Let the water stand for 30-60 seconds. Lay a clean piece of paper towel flat on the frame surface. (Do not scrub; only pick up larger pools of splattered water.) Let paint dry completely.
  5. Position the Americana Top 20 Stencil in the desired location. Using a cosmetic sponge, apply Medium Grey Value 6.

HELPFUL HINTS

It is best to work quickly when applying and blending two darker shades of color. Add a tiny bit of water if needed to extend working time.
