3.    Position paper stencil and tape in place, starting at lowest point and working upward.

4.    Load a stencil brush with Licorice.  Tap on paper towel to remove excess paint.

5.    Use a pouncing motion to stencil, applying in thin coats until area is covered. Carefully remove stencil.

6.    Allow to dry and reapply for opaque coverage.
