    1. Use a #8 flat brush to basecoat the plaque rim, stocking top, and bone Snow White.

    7. Position vertically and secure a stripe stencil with painter's tape. (See photo for placement.) Pour a small puddle of Ultra-Matte Varnish on a palette or plastic plate. Mix in a few drops of Lamp Black. Use a cosmetic sponge wedge to apply a thin coat of the mix to create vertical stripes.

    9. When the vertical stripes are dry, reposition the stencil horizontally. Repeat the application of mix from STEP 4 to create plaid.
