Wash and Press Napkins
Follow cleaning instructions on napkins. Wash, dry and iron smooth.
Place stencil in desired location on napkin and hold firmly or tape in place. Tip: Choose a stencil that is sized appropriately for the napkin so the design will be visible when the napkin is folded.
Mix acrylic craft paint and fabric medium in bottle with foam brush top following manufacturer's instructions for mix ratio. Screw on top. Press down on foam brush gently until paint comes out. Pounce brush gently over stencil to fully fill in design. Do not use too much paint or it will bleed under stencil.
