Preparation

  1. Refer to the Basic Silkscreen Tips for information on using Martha Stewart Silkscreens.

Instructions

  1. Using a large flat brush, basecoat top section of the stool Wedding Cake. Let dry. Apply a second coat for complete coverage and allow to dry.
  2. Mask over the painted white area using stencil tape. Paint below the tape line Blue Sky. Also paint the stool bottom Blue Sky. Let dry.
  3. Silkscreen the crackle pattern Blue Sky onto the stool top using a stencil brush. Lift the silkscreen, clean it and allow to dry. Then repeat the pattern over the entire stool surface. Tip: Let each section dry before you repeat next section.
