Instructions for one can:
1. Basecoat the can with white paint and let it dry.
2. Take your paper napkin and remove the bottom layers so that you only have the top layer.
3. Cut the napkin out to a height slightly higher than the can. Any overlap can be glued over and under the can rim
4. Wrap the napkin around the can to determine how much the napkin overlaps. Cut the napkin down so that it only overlaps about one centimeter. Discard the rest.
5. Place the paper napkin onto the can so that the center of the napkin is in front of you.
6. To apply the glue, place your left hand (or right hand if you are left handed) inside the can like in the image below. This will make working easier and also prevent that you touch the napkin or wet glue while working. Then brush on a thin layer of glue over the napkin. The glue will saturate through the napkin adhere the napkin onto the can. Start at the middle and work your way outwards in all directions. If your can has grooves, make sure to carefully catch them while brushing the glue onto the can. Gently brush in the direction of the grooves so that the napkin softly falls into place and picks up the groove pattern. Try to avoid wrinkles while “painting”. Smaller wrinkles will also disappear when the glue dries.
7. When the can is completely covered, set aside and let it thoroughly dry.
