How to Paint a Zodiac Chart

See how fun and easy it is to create a zodiac chart with Kathryn Costa’s new astrology stencils. In this first project, you’ll pick two colors that you love to “tap” and “pounce” paint onto the stencil to form the wheel. Then we’ll walk through the progression of 12 zodiac signs from Aries to Pisces adding their symbols and keywords to the zodiac chart.
