  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Project time does not include drying time for the paint. You may find it helpful to first practice your stenciling on a piece of scrap paper that has the stencil taped to it.
  • 2
    Load Camelia Pink and/or Geranium and/or Wild Salmon and/or Candy Apple sparingly on a stencil brush and dab off excess. Lightly dab on a thin layer of paint; apply a second coat if necessary. Paint all areas of one color on the stencil before moving on to the next.
  • 3
    While paint is still wet, carefully peel off stencil.
  • 4
    Continue painting areas of the stencil according to your design with the various colors listed under supplies (Camelia Pink and/or Geranium and/or Wild Salmon and/or Candy Apple). Let the paint dry completely before placing another stencil (or color) over it.
  • 5
    Ombré Bag only: mix Pink Dahlia with the satin spray medium as instructed on package. With the bag upside down, spray back and forth in smooth even strokes lightening the application as you work toward the middle so the color fades out, creating an ombré effect.
  • 6
    Stiffened Butterflies only: create stiffened fabric butterflies follow instructions on the bottle of fabric siffener to stiffen your linen fabric. Let dry completely. Use a stencil brush with Pink Dahlia and follow general stenciling instructions. Use scissors to cut around the butterfly shapes and attach to pin backs. Gently fold the butterflies to create a dimensional look.
