  1. Basecoat your sign with the foam brush, start with the edges first then fill in the front of the sign with the blue paint
  2. Let it dry completely, apply a second coat if needed
  3. Take the wood stick to rub down the front of the vinyl stencil to make sure the image will stick to the clear transfer tape
  4. Carefully peal the clear transfer tape off backing making sure the image is stuck to the tape.
  5. Stick your stencil image on your board, using the wood stick to rub the vinyl to make sure it will stick to the board
  6. Slowly peal off  the clear transfer tape leaving the vinyl image stencil on your board
  7. Use the fat part of the sponge wedge to dip into your paint, coat your sponge in paint and dab off as much paint as you can before you start to fill in the negative space on your board.  You want to use as little paint as possible, you can always go back and do many light coats. DO NOT USE WATER. 
  8. When your paint is dry you are ready to peal off the vinyl stencil, use a safety pin to peal up any small pieces of vinyl off your board
  9. Turn board over and affix the sawtooth hanger to the top center of the sign using a hammer 
  10. If you are making the handprint sign it is time to paint on your hands, start with the largest hand first. Using the foam brush mix your color with a little hand soap, this will help clean your hand of paint when finished and will not affect the project. If you need more colors for your family and do not have your own paint at home, you can mix any of the colors with the leftover cream paint to make any of those colors lighter for a different look.  Then paint your wood heart and use the glue dots or glue to affix the heart to the board.
If you are making the flower sign, paint your flower using the detail brush.  when its dry use the glue dots or glue to affix the flower to your board.
