Add a design element to your solid color outdoor umbrella, this project adds polka dots to this solid colored teal umbrella.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- Wagner FLEXiO 4000
- Canvas market umbrella
- Exterior latex paint in semigloss finish
- Circle stencil
- Painter's tape
- Craft knife
- Cleanup rag
Create a circle stencil using either a compass, tracing the bottom of a large can, or by printing a template off the internet. Once outlined, cut out the circular stencil with a craft knife.
Place the stencil on an open umbrella panel and secure with painter's tape. We did five randomly-placed dots on each panel of the umbrella.
Pick a color that will complement the umbrella and load the FLEXiO® 4000 with paint. With the sprayer set to low, paint over the stencil moving left to right within the confines of your template. Carefully remove the
stencil and repeat, cleaning the stencil with a dry rag when necessary.
