to create any pattern or design you want.
Step 4: Paint Your Design
1. Tight the stencil to the plastic plate. ( Use your fingers to secure the stencil in itÃ¢â¬â¢s place)
2. Spray a few layers of paint on the plastic plate depends on the type of the spray, color and desired transparency. (Let dry between layers).
Step 5: Hang on the Wall
- 4 Pipes - Their length is the length in which you want the lamp to be away from the wall
- 4 Screws - Pipes Length + Plastic depth + length of anchor.
3. Put plastic on the wall and mark with a pencil the exact location of the holes.
4. Drill 4 holes in the wall. Put plastic anchor.
