Other Supplies

Darice wooden paddle, 1" flat paintbrush, Wax candle, Sandpaper, Foam plate, 8” black and white ribbon

Instructions

  1. Paint paddle Fresh Foliage. Let dry.
  2. Rub wax candle onto the edges of the surface, around the outside, and a small amount on the front. Brush off excess wax.
  3. Paint entire surface Baby Pink. Let dry.
  4. Lightly sand surface. Where the wax was applied, the pink paint will lift easily to create a distressed look.
  5. To stencil, apply a small puddle of paint to a foam plate. Lightly dip Spouncer into paint. Blot Spouncer on a paper towel to remove excess paint, then lightly pounce in stencil cut-out. Reload Spouncer and repeat pouncing until desired color intensity is achieved.
  6. Position turtle stencil where desired and stencil Fresh Foliage using Spouncer.
  7. Position Greek Letters as shown and stencil Licorice. Let dry.
  8. Tie ribbon on handle.
