Other Supplies
Paper towel and drawer with divided spaces
5/8” stencil brush


  1. Wipe the entire surface to be stenciled with a damp cloth to remove dust.
  2. Adhere the stencils in desired spaces.
  3. Swirl the stencil brush around in the Folk Art Stencil Crème, blot excess paint onto a paper towel so you have an evenly loaded brush (no globs of paint in bristles).
  4. Apply paint over stencils in an up and down, swirling motion. Remove stencil and leave to dry. Repeat in desired areas.
  5. Paint the blank areas left in the tray with Folk Art Pure Gold.
  6. Dip the non-bristle end of a paintbrush in Folk Art Pueblo paint and add dots to the stenciled design to highlight with the tip.
  7. Leave to dry and seal the tray with a coat of Mod Podge Clear Varnish to protect the painted surface.

Tip: Leaving the paint with a bristled textured allows for a rustic or primitive look. For a more solid stencil design, allow the paint to dry and add a second coat.
