Check Tracing

Pull the printed page and graphite paper away to reveal the letters' outline on the wall. If necessary, retrace any areas that didn't transfer or are smudged.

Paint Over Outlines

Fill in each letter's outline with latex paint. The blunt-tip lettering brush we recommend can be used flatly to get a wide line or on its side for a thinner, detail line. After paint has dried, clean up any stray pencil lines or graphite smudges with the white eraser.
