I would suggest planning out the stencil design placement (both the vinyl stencils and the mylar stencils) ahead of time. Once you have your design in mind, place the vinyl sticky snowflakes onto the placemat. (I used free holiday vector snowflake patterns found online and generated them on a Cricut.) Use a burnishing tool or old credit card to help seal the edges of the snowflakes. You can also apply a thin layer of clear acrylic to seal the edges and prevent any paint from leaking under the vinyl snowflakes. If you seal the snowflakes with the clear acrylic, let this dry before moving on to the next step.

Use the cigar roller to apply a thin layer of Shimmering Sky Metallic Paint to the entire surface of the placemat and let dry about one hour. Repeat with a second coat until the Shimmering Sky becomes opaque. Let dry and then remove the vinyl snowflake patterns, which will reflect the white Snowflake Metallic Paint nicely against the blue of the Shimmering Sky Metallic Paint.

Position the snowflake mylar stencils by Royal Design Studio to taste. You can overlap them like I did or keep them singular. Stencil the patterns with the Snowflake Metallic Paint and stencil brush, taking care to offload the material thoroughly from the stencil brush to ensure no leakage under the stencil. While the Snowflake Metallic Paint is still wet, remove the stencil and sprinkle black or white fine glitter to taste. Let dry and brush off the extra glitter.
