How To Paint A Lamp Shade Tutorial:

  • First, attach the stencil to your lamp shade using painter’s tape.  Be sure the lamp shade’s seam is toward the back and your stencil is centered in the front.
  • Next, use your applicator sponge to apply the paint to the stencil.  Do not push or brush the paint on, simply pounce it in place.  Also be sure to off-load your sponge really well.  Multiple, light coats of paint are going to work best.
  • Continue to add light layers of paint until your stencil is filled in to your liking.
