    Let dry completely between painting steps.

    2. Instruction #1
    3. Mix together (2) parts Burnt Umber with (1) part Lamp Black. Mix this mix with an equal part of Staining/Antiquing Medium. Using a 3/4" flat brush, paint one slat at a time in the mix. Save the mix for the next step. Wipe away the paint with a paper towel to reveal the wood grain. Repeat until the entire sign is covered.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Using the mix from the previous step and a 3/4" flat brush, create a dark border around the sign. (Paint in a circular motion and allow the paint to fade as it reaches the center.) Do not wipe the paint back.
    6. Instruction #3
    7. Position the Value Kraft Cauldron Stencil onto the center of the sign. Hold in place with painter's tape. Using a cosmetic sponge, apply Snow White to all the lettering. Apply Lamp Black to the cauldron and Foliage Green to the bubbles using a small stencil brush.

    9. Using a #2 round brush, paint bats (refer to pattern) onto the outside edges of the sign. Paint the bats in a mix of (2) parts Snow White and (1) part Burnt Umber.
