  1. Mix a 1:2 ratio of Raw Umber and water in your bowl. Paint this mixture onto your wood ornament. Wipe off the excess mixture with a paper towel. Let dry.
  2. Cut out a sideways view picture of your pet so that the outline of your pet stays intact. We’ll use the outline of your pet as a stencil for the ornament.
  3. Center the outline of your pet onto the ornament. Secure with stencil tape.
  4. Use your stencil brush and Wicker White to stencil in the outline of your pet. Let dry.
