First, make sure that
your piece of acetate is large enough to cover the lace. Using a
lino roller, spread a thin, even layer of paint on to the acetate.
Place the lace face down in the paint. Firmly run the roller over
the lace until it is completely covered. Peel the lace from the
acetate and position on your chosen piece of stationery. Place a
piece of greaseproof paper over the top and roll firmly with a
clean roller being careful not to move the lace. Peel off the lace
and allow the paint to dry. Wash, dry and reuse the lace for your
next piece of stationery.
