instructions

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Clean your vases with isopropyl alcohol and let them dry. Place stripes of stencil tape on your medium vase. Use your stencil brush to stencil stripes into the blank spaces with FolkArt Multi-Surface paint. Remove stencil tape and let dry.
  2. Use your pencil to draw leopard print shapes on your stencil blank. Cut out the shapes with your craft knife. Try to leave the stencil blank as in tact as possible. Cut out your leopard stencils and place them on your tallest vase to make a leopard print design. Stencil the design with FolkArt Multi-Surface paint. Remove stencil blanks and let dry.
  3. Repeat step two, but instead of creating a leopard print design, create a faux terrazzo design. Fill in the design with FolkArt Multi-Surface paint. Remove stencil blanks and let dry.
