Before painting, prewash apron to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener. Shake bottles of paint well. Cover work surface with plastic tablecloth.
Cut desired letters from Multi-Surface Stencil to create sentiment. Press stencil onto front of apron, running fingernail around edges to ensure a tight seal.
Apply masking tape around edges and between letters as needed to create a protective border around stencil.
Squeeze a puddle of Matte Crimson Red onto foil. Tap flat edge of sponge into paint. Tap onto a clean area of foil to remove excess. Tap into opening of stencil. Reload sponge as necessary. Remove stencil. Let dry.
Apply Sticky Fabric Stencils along upper and lower edges of apron, alternating sizes and spacing evenly.
Squeeze a separate puddle of Crimson Red, Coral and Sunshine Yellow Paint onto foil. Apply Matte Crimson Red at lower edge of flame, using sponge. Apply Coral to center of flame, using a clean sponge and slightly over lapping Matte Crimson Red. Repeat procedure to apply Matte Sunshine Yellow at upper edge, using a clean sponge and overlapping Coral. While paint is still wet, use a clean sponge to blend edges of colors. Remove stencil before paint dries.
