Instructions

Other Supplies: Ceramic Storage Jar, Ceramic Paint, Craft Knife, Spray Mount Adhesive, Stencil Paper, Stencil Sponge

  1. Wash your storage jar thoroughly to remove any grease or dirt and dry thoroughly.
  2. Cut out the letters required from stencil paper. Discard the letter and retain the negative shape. Apply a light spray of adhesive to the reverse of this negative space before fixing into position slightly above the centre of the jar.
  3. Mix your required shade of paint in a small container (an empty, thoroughly cleaned yoghurt pot is ideal for this as you can throw it away afterwards).
  4. Apply paint to the sponge and dab away the excess onto kitchen paper before applying to the jar. Build up the colour gradually and allow to dry between applications. When you are happy with the density of the colour peel away the stencil paper.
  5. Repeat this with all of the letters required.
  6. Cut out two leaf shapes and a rose shape from the Frames & Embellishment set. Starting with the rose, spray the negative space and internal elements and place this centrally on the jar.
  7. Mix your required colour of ceramic paint and then apply using a sponge to build up the colour as previously. Allow to dry and then carefully peel away the stencil paper.
  8. Repeat this with the leaf shapes to complete your jar.
  9. If you have some areas where the paint as leaked behind the stencil paper, simply scrape this away with a sharp craft knife.
