Instructions

  1. Paint the letter with two coats of Coffee Bean. Allow for dry time.
  2. Place the stencil over the letter (use low-tac tape to secure if needed). Tap the Spouncer brush into the Inca Gold and tap off the excess paint. Working in an up and down motion, paint over the stencil. While the paint is still wet, lift the stencil to reveal the design. Allow to dry.
  3. Heat a Mod Melt stick in the Mod Melter. Using Mod Melt as a glue, attach the trim around the outer edge of the letter.

PROJECT TIP: Low-Tac painters tape works great when working with stencils because it has a low chance of pulling up the paint.
