How To Stencil A Galvanized Metal Tray

June 16, 2017

The other day while I was shopping I couldn't resist picking up this galvanized metal tray.  When I saw it in the store I had this great idea of using a vintage stencil that I had waiting for me back home.

A few weeks ago I received several stencils from Angie at  Knick of Time's Vintage Sign Stencils. This was my first time using these beautiful stencils and I have to tell you how much I love them! They are high-quality and are made of thick plastic which made stenciling a breeze, plus they are very easy to clean!

Here is the tray I purchased 


The stencil I picked for this project is FARM FRESH MILK DELIVERED DAILY.       
  
If you never stenciled on galvanized metal and are interested in starting, I put together a simple tutorial for you to follow, plus some shopping links for supplies. Let's get started......



Use Painters Tape or Stencil Adhesive to hold the stencil in place.   


Use a Foam Pouncer to apply the paint in thin coats. I usually use a brush, but I wanted to try out my new foam pouncer. The foam pouncer was easy to use and easy to clean up.


Mix Acrylic Craft Paint with a Multi-Purpose Sealer the sealer improves paint adhesion on slick surfaces like metal.  I mixed half paint to half of the sealer.

Dip the pouncer in the mixture and dab off excess paint onto a paper towel. Apply the paint to the stencil by starting at the outside edges, dabbing the pouncer in a circular motion while moving toward the center.  




 Carefully remove the stencil and wait for the paint to dry.  To protect the paint from scratching and chipping apply  Clear Acrylic Gloss Spray.  Make sure the acrylic spray dries completely before putting your decor on top.

That's all there is to it! 


I have a few more stencils from Knick of Time's Vintage Sign Stencils that I will be using for future projects.  I can't wait to share those with you!



Thank you, Angie, for sending me these amazing stencils!
