It’s best to work out outdoors when using permanent spray. Gather all the materials you need and cover your work surface completely before you spray. First, print out a copy of the stencil and transfer the paw print design onto the stencil sheet using a permanent marker. Next, cut them out carefully so you end up with a negative sheet.
To leave a narrow section unpainted, mask it carefully with film. Prepare the wooden tabletop by spraying it with a coat of universal primer and leave it until thoroughly dry. For the essentials on working with edding Permanent Spray, go to our 'Spray basics' page.
Next, spray the entire surface in mild mint. We recommend you spray at a distance of around 25 cm using horizontal and vertical strokes to ensure a more even coverage. Let this dry for around 30 minutes.
Once this is completely dry you can then spray on the paw print pattern. Cover the section you want to leave unpainted carefully with masking film. Lay the paw print stencil on the surface and spray with vibrant amber. Leave to dry thoroughly.
When you’re sure that everything is dry, carefully remove the stencil along with the film layer.
