INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Start with a colored of regular burlap placemat.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Use painter's tape to make it so there is three sections.
  3. Use a 3/4" Flat brush to paint the outer sections Coral Shell and the middle Sweet mint. Rinse brush.
  4. Use a 3/4" Flat brush to mix (2) parts Titanium White with (1)part Sweet Mint. Make a big batch because the pouncer will soak most of it up. Then use the pouncer to make random polka dots in the middle section. Wash pouncer.
  5. Use a pen to trace and transfer the patterns onto fabric of choice I used a pink fabric, lime green fabric, and plain black fabric. Then cut out with scissors.
  6. Once placemat is dry you can use a 3/4" Flat brush to attach and layer fabrics using Fabric Decoupage. Follow label instructions. Then be sure to brush more on top when finished to seal and protect. Rinse brush.
