Medium-grit sandpaper

Instructions

  1. Basecoat pallet with White Adirondack. Allow to dry.
  2. Very lightly stencil the words of the tree in Rich Black just so you will know where to paint the black rectangles. This is only a guide for placement.
  3. Tape off each word that you stenciled lightly and paint over Rich Black using the stencil brush. Allow it to dry and then stencil the words in White Adirondack. Allow to dry. Sand to distress.
    • Optional: Use the layering block to add extra distressed areas as shown in photo. Dip the block into the Rich Black and then dab onto a paper towel to remove excess. Run the block along the sides of the pallet and then very, very lightly along the slats.
