Bucket hats are back and have been trending in Brooklyn lately. Dig yours out of the closet and make it unique by stenciling it!
For this how-to you’ll need: A denim hat, Stencil1 Skull set, FolkArt multi-surface paint, stencil brushes, low-tack spray adhesive, tape.
Step 2: Put some paint on a plate and use your brush to begin stenciling. Remember to use a dry brush technique. This means using very little paint and applying several coats. Paint using an up and down motion.
Step 3: Remove the stencil and allow the paint to dry to touch.
Step 4: Fold the hat so that another section is exposed as flat as possible. Repeat steps 1 through 3 to stencil another skull. We stenciled a total of 3 skulls, two blue and one white. For the white skull, we used an extra dry brush to give it more of a vintage look.
Step 5: Heat seal the paint with an iron. Snap a picture of your hat and share it with us @Stencil1.
