You can have a stencil printed and laminated at a copy shop using our downloadable design. For a time-saving alternative, order the Indian Floral Inlay Stencil Set from Royal Design Studio (royaldesignstudio.com) for $26 plus shipping.
Download, print, laminate, and cut out the stencil or use a ready-made stencil. Starting at the top, position the flower at the center of the mirror just beneath the border. Lightly brush paint over the stencil without forcing it beneath the stencil edges. Wait one minute, repeat for a second coat as needed, and remove the stencil. Repeat for the leaves at the top, using the photo of the mirror as a guide. Clean the stencil immediately after use and flip it upside down to mirror the patterns as needed.
Use the same technique as in the previous step to stencil first the flowers and then the leaves in the area surrounding the mirror. Allow the paint to dry for several hours.
