  1. Basecoat wood with Wicker White
  2. Tape off the bottom third of the wood and paint Camel.
  3. Determine the size needed and print out "hi".  Transfer "hi" to stencil blank with the permanent marker.
  4. Cut out "hi" with craft knife.
  5. Stencil "hi" in Bark Brown at the top of sign.  Refer to photo for placement.
  6. To get orange, mix Dafodil Yellow with Engine Red onto paper plate until the desired orange is achieved.
  7. Trace the letters for "pumpkin" in pencil onto scrap paper.  Cut out each letter and place it on sign.  Line up and tape each letter to make sure it stays in place.
  8. Line up the "p" stencil on top of the traced "p".  While holding down the stencil, remove the scrap paper from beneath without moving the stencil on top.
  9. Stencil the "p" with the orange mix.  Repeat with the remaining letters.
  10. Using the liner brush, add depth to each letter by outlining only the top and left side of each letter as shown in photo with Bark Brown.
  11. Squeeze Bark Brown onto a plate.  Dip one flat side of the block into the Bark Brown.  Dab on plate to remove excess.  Lightly glide the wood block along the corners of the sign for distressed look.  Continue on top of the sign over letters.  Repeat with Wicker White.

Secure FolkArt Laser-Cut Painting Stencils to project surfaces with stencil spray adhesive (following manufacturer's instructions) or with stencil tape. Spray adhesive is the better choice for intricately cut or borderless Laser-Cut Painting Stencils. Be sure your stencil is flat and flush on your project surface to avoid paint run-unders.
It is always best to begin by creating a paper pattern. Trace each letter or word onto tracing paper checking your spacing between each letter and each word. Once you are happy with the design, use this paper pattern as your template to stencil directly onto your surface. It is best also to begin stenciling in the center of the word or phrase. Then continue stenciling outwards one letter / word at a time. Also be careful that each letter is completely dry prior to stenciling next to it. Do NOT lay a paper stencil over a wet letter/word.
Gently remove the cut outs from the stencil by pressing on them. If they do not pop out easily, then use a craft knife to cut the area where they remain attached. After removing the cut outs, put them aside you can use the shapes for tracing templates.
