Step 1: Stencil

I printed out a stencil online and cut it out. I then outlined it on to the part of the board that I wanted it and used masking tape to make it ready to paint. I also covered the rest of the board with card stock so nothing would get paint on it.

Step 2: Paint

It is good to use a primer spray paint because it is thick and can also stay on your grip tape very well.

Step 3: Wait

Wait till your paint is completely done and it's simple as that. Your tricked out board is ready for riding!
