    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. If needed, cut the canvas drop cloth to the desired size and iron out the wrinkles in the material. Use the transfer paper to transfer the "Play Ball" pattern onto the cloth. (Or use as a reference to sketch the lettering onto the cloth.) Apply the lettering towards the end of the material so it will be hanging off the end of the tailgate.
