Countryside Bird Stencil by Annie Sloan

Plan out how you're going to use your stencil before you start.  In addition to the Annie Sloan Countryside Bird Stencil you will need:  Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Masking Tape, Annie Sloan Stencil Brush or Annie Sloan small sponge roller, tape measure or ruler.

Try a test on some cardboard to get a feel for how much paint is needed.  Using less paint will keep the lines of your stencilled design crisp.

You can flip the stencil for a mirrored design, repeat separate elements around the main design to cover a large area, overprint for a layered look, or use single birds or berries as accents in different colours.

Ensure surface is clean and dry before you start.  Firmly fix stencil with masking tape in each corner.

If using a paint roller, roll off any excess paint before application, use a light touch to roll over stencil.

When using a stencil brush, dab away excess paint and apply over the stencil with a light stippling action.  Start painting the area from the outside of the stencil inwards to keep lines sharp.

When using on furniture, seal finished design with Annie Sloan Clear Chalk Paint Wax or Annie Sloan Lacquer.

Clean decorative stencils by soaking in warm soapy water and gently rub off paint without scrubbing. Store flat in protective envelope.

Design measures:  191mm x 180mm
