Trace Jig to Ceiling
Starting at the center of the ceiling, trace the jig to the ceiling with a pencil. After each run is complete, use the tape measure and pencil to mark proper width, then use that mark to begin next zigzag run.
Paint First Accent Color
Place painter’s tape along the outside top and outside bottom edge of marked pencil lines for the zigzags intended for the first accent color (Image 1). Using the paint roller and roller sleeve, add the first accent color between each taped-off area (Image 2).
Once dry to the touch, reposition the painter’s tape directly along the inside edges of the newly painted zigzags. This will expose the final areas in need of paint (the second accent color).
