  1. Paint the pallet in two coats of Titanium White letting the coats dry in between. Let dry.
  2. Print out the downloadable art provided at 100% scale.

  4. Before applying to the pallet, overlap each half of the design to create one continue piece and tape lightly in place. Using your craft knife and ruler cut through both pieces and remove excess.
