- Basecoat the entire album in Cactus Green using the 1” wash brush. Tip: to basecoat is total opaque coverage. Two thin coats are preferable; this keeps you from ending up with streaky thick paint. A good tip is to load brush, never more then halfway up bristles. Start in center of area to be painted, pushing color out to pattern line. This technique will leave no ridges.
- Apply spray adhesive to any one of the three Wedded Bliss stencils all of the sayings were repeated randomly, covering the entire top of the album. Allow spray adhesive to dry, pat off excess spray with paper towel. Press stencil firmly in place album. Using 1/4” stencil brush, pick up small amount of White, pat on palette to remove excess paint. Using straight up and down motion pat over open areas of stencil. Repeat as many times as needed to complete the top of the album.
- Tip: Applying two thin coats is preferable; applying to heavily will cause color to bleed under edge of stencil. Covering open areas of stencil not in use with low-tack painter’s tape will keep unwanted color from appearing.

- Lay tracing paper over pattern and trace all lines except those used to denote shadows. The shadow lines are generally short straight lines and several of them. Main lines are where there are color changes. Detail lines are facial features, patterns on fabric, and etc. Lay tracing on surface and tape at top and on one side. Slide graphite paper between tracing and surface with the dark side down; draw over the main lines only. Do not add the detail lines these will be applied after the basecoating is done.
