Stenciling Instructions:

  1. Basecoat or faux finish the lid before stenciling, in any color combination of your choice. (We used a basecoat of F20777 Goosefeather, with a ragged Mocha Translucent color glaze on top.)
  2. Place overlay one on the lid, using a low tack painter's tape to hold the stencil in place. Base coat each design element with F02036 ivory. If you've base coated the lid of your basket with a light color, you can skip this step.
  3. Apply paint to stencil openings on overlay one, per manufacturer's instructions.
  4. Repeat steps two and three, in order, with the remaining four overlays. Use a disappearing quilter's pen or a light pencil to mark the registration triangles. These triangles help you line up each overlay.
  5. Make sure each color is dry to the touch before applying the next color.
  6. Optional: Apply your custom lettering stencil with the paint color of your choice. (We used F02560 Royal Plum)
  7. Fill your basket with goodies, and enjoy a picnic in your favorite spot!

Number each overlay with a permanent marker. It makes identifying each layer, at a glance, much easier.
