  1. Position the Americana Decor Fish Tail Stencil on the lampshade. Secure with 1" painter's tape.
  2. Use a 5/8" stencil brush to apply Legacy in the bottom third of the stencil; Treasure in the middle third; and Escape in the top third. Remove stencil.


To avoid uneven design overlap, position the stencil edge at the back seam of lampshade to begin. This works well with a continuous design. If stenciling a single element, center the stencil in the front of the shade.
