  1. Use foam brush to basecoat tub with 2 coats of Yellow Citron. Allow to dry.
  2. Tape off 1/2" stripe 1-1/2" from the bottom of tub and paint Pure Orange. Allow to dry; remove tape.
  3. To determine placement of stencil motifs, trace selected design(s) on paper. Use masking tape to attach paper designs to project surface. Leave paper cutouts in place until ready to stencil.
  4. Work with 1 paint color at a time. Apply a small puddle of paint to a foam plate and thin paint with water before stenciling. Paint should be the consistency of cream.
  5. Traditional stenciling uses a dry brush technique as follows: Lightly dip stencil brush into diluted paint. Swirl brush on a paper towel until brush is almost dry, then swirl brush into stencil cutout. Apply more pressure to the brush to deepen color. Reload brush & repeat swirling motion until color intensity is achieved.
  6. Attach stencil to tub using masking tape. Stencil selected designs, using a clean brush for each paint color. If overlapping or layering designs, let the 1st layer dry before stenciling on top of it.
  7. Colors used in beverage tub project: Flowers: first layer, Engine Red; second layer, Pure Orange; Bird, Pure Orange; Leaves, Maple Syrup.
