Paint Stencils

Squirt a bit of each paint into two bowls. Then dab a sponge into the red paint. Sponge most of the paint off on the side of the bowl before pressing it on the stencil. The best way to avoid seepage under the stencil is to do a few light coats of paint.

Finishing Touches

To finish off the coasters, add four felt pads to the bottom of each coaster to keep them from scratching each other or a surface. The spray gloss enamel finishes them off beautifully.
