Applying the stencil

Directions:

  1. Make your desired artwork using a design software from your computer. This will serve as your guide. If your printer cannot cater a vinyl stencil, you can print the design on a piece of paper and make it as a guide. Cut your stencil using a silhouette cutting machine or a simple blade cutter. However, if you are not confident in doing this step, you can buy a pre-made adhesive stencil in your nearest craft store.
  2. Affix the stencil smoothly into your ceramic trophy. Make sure that the edge are properly attached.
  3. Apply color to the engrave design with stencil brush or paint dauber. Ensure that you didn’t miss a spot.
  4. Peel off the stencil slowly and carefully.
  5. Let it air-dry for a few hours or until it dries.
  6. Arrange your flowers and foliage creatively.
