- Arabesque Border Stencil
- 2” Royal Stencil Brush
- Your favorite latex paint colors
- Painter’s tape and paper towels
Step 1: Center and secure the stencil design with painter’s tape.
Step 2: Load the stencil brush with paint then offload excess paint onto a paper towel using a circular motion. Offloading is important so that you use minimal paint while stenciling and so paint does not bleed under the stencil.
Step 3: Stencil the border design with a light to medium pressure and circular motion.
Step 4: Remove the stencil. Use the built in registration marks on the stencil to align the stencil across the stair riser.
Step 5: Repeat Steps 2 through 4 until each stair riser is stenciled with a gorgeous design.
