STEP BY STEP
Step 1: Choose a lighter/vibrant color. Apply a layer of the paint to the plate.
Step 2: Roll paint out across entire plate.
Step 3: Take a piece of paper and press it down smoothly onto the plate.
Step 4: Pull the print!
Step 5: Choose a darker/contrasting color. Apply a layer of the paint to the plate.
Step 6: Roll paint out across entire plate.
Step 7: Place down a stencil, and use the print you just pulled with the lighter color over the plate and the print.
Step 8: Now place the stencil over the print, shifting it to the side slightly so you can see the first, lighter color peeking out from under the stencil.
Step 9: Apply an even lighter color onto the plate and roll it out (we recommend white).
Step 10: Take the plate and flip it over onto the print and the stencil, applying pressure just how you would normally on a print.
Step 11: Remove the plate and the stencil from the print to reveal your drop shadow print!
