For such operations, as a rule, Kolorstar water-based paint is used, it must be evenly distributed on the surface of the product, applying slowly small strokes.

- The next method using stencils. You can make a stencil yourself from pieces of adhesive tape. With the help of stencils, you have the opportunity to design a picture with multi-colored figures, stripes, patterns of the correct form.

It all depends on your imagination, you can apply shapes of different shapes, colors and shades, changing letters, stripes, flowers, etc. 3) re-apply the paint, and wait until it dries. After applying the next coat of paint, be sure to let it dry completely so that it does not leak. Paint on the skin must be applied in several layers to make the picture colorful and saturated. After the paint has dried, carefully remove the stencil and fix if necessary irregularities with a cotton swab moistened with solvent.
