You’ll start by adding two layers of Americana Multi-Surface Satin in the shade Black Tie onto the wooden backing to create a black background.

The Multi-Surface Satin is so versatile, you can use it on virtually any surface and no primer is needed. It’s specially designed to brush out smoothly and is super durable too. There are over 100 colors so you shouldn’t have a hard time finding some you love!
