Tic-Tac-Toe DIY Kit
Base coat your Tic-Tac-Toe Board using the foam brush. Start with the edges first then fill in the rest. If you would like to use these paints for a "stained" look, instead of using the foam brush to paint you can use a baby wipe or a damp paper towel to dip into the paint and smooth on your board. This will let the wood grain show through.
Let dry completely, apply second coat if needed.
Base coat the tic-tac-toe blocks using the foam brush. Start with edges first, when edges are dry, brush one side of block, let that completely dry before flipping it over to paint the other side of the block.
While your blocks are drying, take an old credit card to rub down the front of the vinyl stencil (#) to make sure the image will stick to the tape.
Carefully peal the clear transfer tape off baking making sure the image is stuck to the tape.
Stick you stencil image on your board, using a credit card rub the vinyl to make sure the image will stick to the board.
Slowly peal off the clear transfer tape leaving the vinyl image stencil on your board.
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.
When you have your board complete, move onto stenciling the blocks. Use the reusable mylar stencil (X & O) Position your stencil over your block holding it in place with one hand while you use your sponge to dab paint on with the other hand. Use very light coats.
When you are finished painting one side of all 9 blocks, flip over (when dry) the blocks and repeat step 9 again.
