To do it well you can use the technique of reservations, which is the easiest to put into practice. You will need, in addition to the mat in question (smooth, without drawings, of course), body tape or plastic (better if it is wide) acrylic paint of the colors you like and a spatula or a brush of hard bristles.

But how to write something and that we are perfect? Very simple: using a template and stenciling the area to be painted. The first thing you have to do is decide what message you are going to write on the doormat. Obviously, it has to be something very short and direct. Once you are clear, print with the computer and printer the letters to the right size. Then empty with a cutter the inside of each letter to get you the template you will need later.
Now you just have to hold this template on the mat in the corresponding place and stencil the letter in question. The best thing to do is to cut a round brush of hard bristles and thus you will have a good brushing brush. Once you’ve removed the template, you can make the necessary retouching. We have already talked about the difficulty of getting the paint to penetrate between the fibers of the mat. With a little patience, you will get it.
