Squeeze some Soft Fabric Paint onto your paint palette. Begin painting your custom tumbler cup by using a paintbrush to fill in the butterfly stencil with earthy, nature-inspired colors. Carefully remove the stencil once you’re finished each painted butterfly. Repeat this process to fill your cup with colorful butterflies and allow to dry completely.
