Apply the back of the Thanksgiving stencil to the fuzzing cloth a few times. Carefully position the handprint turkey stencil on the platter. Consider the overall arrangement and spacing of the feathers for a balanced design.

Dip a squeegee into your chosen chalk paste color and gently smear it all over the design. 

NOTE: This is for decoration purposes only. While the chalk paste is non-toxic it is not for human consumption and food should not touch the paste.  

Step 5: Remove the Handprint Turkey Stencils

Once the chalk paste is on the hand Thanksgiving turkey craft, carefully remove the turkey stencils while the paste is still wet. This will prevent messing up the finished design.

Inspect the painted feathers for any imperfections or smudges. Use a cotton tip dipped in water to touch up any areas that need refining. Allow the chalk paste to dry completely.
