INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: Let dry completely between painting steps. You will need a canvas material folding chair in a color of your choice. Logos are ok; they can be covered with paint.

  1. Remove all tags from the folding chair.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Tear the painter's tape into a rectangle shape on the front or back of the chair. Use a ruler to center the rectangle.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Use a 3/4" flat brush and Lipstick to fill in the entire rectangle until you cover up the logo if any. Rinse brush.
    Step 2 Example
  4. In a font of your choice, send the words "Team Dad" or "Team Mom" to the Silhouette machine and cut out onto Con-Tact paper.
  5. Use a cosmetic sponge with Cotton Ball for every other letter; use a new cosmetic sponge with Silver (Metallic) for the rest. Remove the Con-Tact paper.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Use a #8 flat brush and Black Tie to paint a border around the Lipstick rectangle. Rinse brush.
    Step 5 Example
  7. Use a #1 liner brush and Black Tie to outline all the letters. Rinse brush.

HELPFUL HINTS
