  2. Seal the front of all paper pieces with a coat of Matte. When dry, Apply a coat of Matte to holder surface. Place paper onto surface, cover with wax paper and use squeegee to smooth any bumps. Repeat process around remaining sides matching the pattern. Seal whole surface several coats of Matte to seal.
  3. Tape off two areas on front end of holder as shown. Use scissors to cut rounded edges into tape at corners.
  4. Using Spouncer, apply one coat of chalkboard paint. Tap lightly over paint with Spouncer to smooth out bubbles. Let dry and then apply second coat. Remove tape.
