Step 1:

Wipe wall with clean, damp cloth to prepare the painting surface.



Step 2:

Lay down the drop cloth to protect floors; use painter's tape to cover trim, molding, ceiling and the edges of any adjacent walls.



Step 3: 

Using the angled brush, apply base color just inside the taped areas and then paint the remaining area with the woven roller.



Step 4:

Remove painter's tape while paint is still damp; allow paint to dry 24 hours.



Step 5: 

Using the tape measure, find the center of the wall and lightly mark with the pencil; center the stencil over the pencil mark; use the level to ensure that the stencil is straight and secure it in place with painter's tape.



Step 6:

Make light pencil marks around each corner of stencil to help align the next placement.



Step 7: 

Using the mini foam roller, apply the second color over stencil; carefully lift stencil after paint application and wipe down after each use.
Tip: To save on cleanup time, create multiple stencils.



Step 8:

Line up edge of stencil with the pencil marks from Step 6; repeat steps 6 and 7 until reaching adjacent walls, ceiling and baseboard.
Tip: For a more natural sky, place the stencil at random.



Step 9: 

Allow paint to dry, following suggested drying time on the can label.
