Paint decorative dots on the chalkboard wooden frame Place the metal stencil over the chalkboard wooden frame. Dip the tip of your finger in the Dark Blue Tactilcolor finger paint and then place your finger in the holes of the metal stencil. Allow to dry. Clean and dry the metal stencil using paper towel or a cloth. Shift the metal stencil slightly over the frame to hide the blue spots (the red of the frame should show in the holes of the stencil). Dip the tip of your finger in the Light Blue Tactilcolor finger paint and then place your finger in the holes of the metal stencil. Allow to dry. Clean and dry the metal stencil.
