- Stenciling – When stenciling this type of project, it is easier to create a mask by using painter's tape on the open areas of the stencil that you don't want paint to go through. Dab the back of the stencil lightly with Stencil Adhesive. Press the stencil firmly in place in the upper left corner of the lid. Load a cosmetic wedge sponge with Navy Blue, (grasp the very skinny end and pat the wide flat end into the paint) pat on palette to remove excess paint. Using straight up and down motion, pat over the open areas of the stencil. Repeat in the lower right corner of the lid and above the wine bottle cork.
