Step two: Wipe paint across letters, wipe off excess with paper towel. Step three: Use bent and chain nose pliers to attach pendant to jump ring and chain. Step four: Tape the rectangle pendant to the bench block. You can stamp left to right or top to bottom. Stamp date. Use an awl or a period stamp in between the numbers of the date.
