Do not touch it after that.

Step 3

Spray the back of the stencil with adhesive and place it on the tile.

Paint the tile over the stencil with the metallic paint using the foam brush. Remove the stencil while the paint is still wet. Be careful to lift the stencil straight up from the tile, making sure not to smear the wet paint. Let the paint dry completely.

Step 4

Lay your painted tiles on a cookie sheet and place them in the oven at 325 degrees.

After 30 minutes, turn the oven off and let the tiles cool down slowly inside the oven. This will help the paint cure correctly.

If desired, spray a clear coat on the tiles to protect the paint.
