  1. Apply the Liquid Stencil Adhesive to the backside of chosen floral stencil. Allow to dry until it is tacky to the touch. Working with one stencil at a time, position the stencil with adhesive side down onto the unfinished wood table top; press in place creating a tight bond.
  2. Add sections of stencil tape too all four sides of each stencil adding an extra layer of protection to the exterior space of the stencil design.
  3. Pour a small amount of Infra Red into a foam bowl.
  4. Load the stencil brush with Infra Ted by dipping the bristles into the bowl of dye. Blot the loaded brush onto paper towels to remove excess dye creating a dry brush.
  5. Begin stenciling Infra Red over one of the stencil designs. Lift to remove the stencil, then reposition it where desired.
  6. Continue stenciling adding the two other floral stencil designs where desired creating an overall stenciled floral pattern on the table top.
  7. To create the dipped look on the table legs. Tape off desired height using stencil tape. Brush Metallic Silver Sterling just below the stencil tape line.  Allow to dry.
  8. When completely dry, apply a couple coats of FolkArt Ultra Dye Satin Varnish to the entire table to seal and protect. Allow to dry and completely cure before using.


  • When stenciling with smaller stencils have little to no border, it is always a good idea to mask around the stencil edges with stencil tape as an added layer of protection.
  • Clean your dirty stencil immediately after use in warm soapy water.
