Home Paint It - - MAKEOVER -

• sten­cil

• A4 Priplak (0.5mm plas­tic sheet)

• mask­ing tape

• craft knife

• cut­ting mat

• pen­cil

• artist’s paint­brush

• wide soft-bris­tle brush

• gild­ing size (avail­able from The Deckle Edge)

• cop­per leaf (avail­able from The Deckle Edge)

1 Stick the sten­cil to the Priplak with the mask­ing tape to se­cure it in place. Use the craft knife to care­fully cut out the de­sign. 2 Us­ing the sten­cil, draw the pat­tern on the floor. 3 With the artist’s brush, paint the gild­ing size within the pat­tern bor­ders; leave for about 15 min­utes to get tacky. 4 Gen­tly place a sheet of cop­per leaf over each pat­tern. Use the soft-bris­tle brush to care­fully smooth over the cop­per leaf; the ar­eas coated with the gild­ing size will stick and any ex­cess will brush off.
