INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  2. Paint the outside of the house Vivid Violet with the #12 flat brush.
  3. Paint the base and inside of the house with Citron Green and the #12 flat brush.
  4. Hold or tape the Zinnias Stencil onto the birdhouse.
  5. Dip the cosmetic sponge in Citron Green and lightly dab over the entire image. Repeat randomly over the birdhouse, adding paint to the sponge as needed.

HELPFUL HINTS

To keep the stencil from bleeding, after you dip the cosmetic sponge in paint, dab the excess paint off on the palette or plate before applying to the stencil.

To use the birdhouse outdoors, spray it with Americana Matte Sealer/Finisher (DAS13).
