instructions

  1. Paint your wood surface with your darkest blue color from your stencil paste kit and let dry.
  2. Apply some of the white from your stencil paste kit to your 1” wood block. Drag your wood block down the edges of your surface. This will create a distressed looking effect.
  3. Cut out the words you’ll need from your mesh stencil pack to create your sign. Arrange the stencil(s) onto your surface. Remove the backing from your adhesive stencil(s) and place them on your surface.
  4. Squeeze your stencil paste onto your squeegee, and apply the paste to your stencil by dragging the squeegee over your stencil. Replenish your squeegee with more paint if needed. Rinse off your squeegee in between colors. Tape off areas of your stencil if needed to achieve a cleaner design.
  5. Remove your stencils from your surface while the paint is still wet.
  6. Wash your wet stencil with warm water to reuse.
