Directions:

Step 1: Take your pencil and sketch a phrase on your hat. Tip:  Find a font you like online to use as your guide. We used the font “Bombshell Pro.” If you don’t like your handwriting, just use a stencil or iron-on letters.

Step 2: Take the acrylic paint and trace the pencil lines you made. This is the hard part because it’s tricky to paint over the grooves of the hat. Make one line (the width of the brush tip) first and then fill it in to make it thicker and straight, adding thickness to the lines where desired. 

Step 3: Once you are done painting allow your hat to dry for at least 3 hours before wearing.
