Choose the stencil that you want to use and place it on the tag. Place a little bit of chalk paste on the squeegee and cover the stencil with the paste. You really only need a little bit of paste for these silk screen transfers.

The best part is they are reusable! Scrape any unused paste back into the jar. Slowly remove the transfer and you have a beautiful finish, with no bleeding! Use the heat gun again to dry it quickly.
