Angela Kumpe has done it again! If you’d like to add a little flair to your pet guests this Thanksgiving, you’ll want to watch as Angela designs a cute turkey stencil and shows you how to use an airbrush to paint it on a cute Lab mix. Don’t worry if you’re not a great free-hand artist, Angela shows you step-by-step how to find the perfect image and create a template that you can use time and again. The supplies she uses can be purchased anywhere, from your local craft shop to the art supply section of most department stores. Once you’ve created the stencil, it’s time to apply the paint. Angela uses an airbrush in this lesson, but you could also use blow pens or paint and brushes. Watch as the design comes to life before your eyes in just a few steps! With practice, this type of creative styling can become a regular part of your grooming service.

In this video you will learn:

  • where to get supplies to make the template.
  • how to create bold and fine lines for more detail.
  • how to change colors so the result doesn’t look ‘muddy’
  • what to use to thin the paint or clean your tools – the answer will surprise you!
  • how to add definition to make your design ‘pop’.
