Americana acrylic paint: French VanillaMustard Seed, Light Buttermilk
Acrylic sealer spraymatte finish
Place the freezer paper shiny side down. Use spray adhesive to attach a regular sheet of copy/printer paper to the dull side of the freezer.
Trim the excess freezer paper off. This is your transfer sheet.
You will need to REVERSE your image and print it out onto the freezer paper side of your transfer sheet.
Be careful not to touch the image after it prints. The ink will still be a bit wet and you can smudge it!
Paint the canvas French Vanilla. When dry attach stencil with masking tape.
Load a cosmetic sponge with Mustard Seed paint and dab off the excess.
Apply paint over the stencil in an up and down motion so as not to push paint underneath the stencil.
When the first section is done, reposition the stencil, lining up the end of the finished section with the stencil itself. Tape down and continue adding paint. Do this until you've gone all the way around, leaving the center of the canvas empty.
Use a large scruffy brush to add Light Buttermilk paint to the center of the canvas. Don't be heavy handed, dab off excess paint onto a paper towel before adding to the canvas. Soften the edges of the center oval using the scruffy brush or a cosmetic sponge.
Use a scruffy brush to soften all the edges and corners of the canvas. Let it dry completely.
Place the bee image face down onto the center of the canvas and carefully hold it in place with one hand (or tape it if you like). Rub the back of the paper with a spoon to transfer the ink image from the freezer paper to your canvas. Carefully lifting and peeking to see if it's transferring is fine, just don't move it or it won't be lined up!
Carefully lift the paper up to reveal your newly transferred design! Allow it to dry for several hours, then spray with acrylic sealer.
