Set a modern table with these simple napkins, with colorful triangle accents.


    • water container
    • palette or plastic plate
    • paper towels
    • pencil
    • #10 flat brush
    • parchment paper
    • iron and ironing board
    • freezer paper

    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    1. Use a pencil to draw triangles on the parchment paper (where and how many you want).
    2. Use a craft knife to cut out all the triangles out of the parchment paper.
    3. Iron napkins on ironing board to remove any wrinkles. Apply the parchment paper stencil by ironing onto the napkins, shiny side down. (Put a piece of freezer paper underneath the napkins to protect the work space.)
    4. Use a #10 flat brush to mix (1) part Cadmium Yellow with (1) part True Green. Save mix for next step.

    6. Use a #10 flat brush and load separately with True Blue, True Green, and mix from the previous step. Paint over the triangles. (See photo.) Do not rinse brush in between.
