Question from Catherine W.
Do you paint what you want, or do does the instructor give you ideas/everyone paints the same design?
Answer from Beth L. Verified Educator
Hi-we provides quite a few stencils to choose from, plus individual letter stencils. We even show you how to do the chalk transfer technique, to transfer a printed image onto your sign to paint. Hope that helps! Shiny Squirrel
