How to do it:

1. Cover the board with black paint. You can water yours down so that it acts more like a stain than paint.

2. Cut out the moon phases template, and on the back of the template, scribble with a pencil along the border of each shape. This will prepare the shapes for a graphite transfer.

3. Place the template right side up onto the board. Now trace around the shapes with a pencil or pen. When you lift the template you should see a graphite outline of the moon phases. You may use the same template, flipped upside down, to do the other half of the board too. The scribbled pencil marks should hold up for at least one more transfer.

4. Use a fine paint brush to fill in the outlines of the moon phases. Allow a little bit of the black to show through, and your shapes will look even more like moon phases.

5. Mount picture hanging hardware on either side of the back of the board, and you're ready to hang your art!
