   We first used a spatula to apply the  plaster through the stencil, then a bristle brush to create a defined texture in the surface. Please note that with borders, you may have to mark up the entire room and stencil every other print, to avoid any smearing.        Once the plaster dried (3-4 hours) the entire wall surface (including the textured stencil designs) was painted in a light yellow color.  
   On top of the yellow base color, we then applied brown glaze mix with a cloth unevenly over the entire surface. Before the glaze mix dried completely we used a dry or damp cloth to expose the lighter yellow color.        Finally, re-used the stencil to apply an olive green highlight over the design. We used a cloth with very little paint on it (dry to the touch) and lightly rubbed it across the stencil surface.
