My first sign

by Becky
I love all the painted signs I've seen on HT. I decided to try my hand at sign making. I printed out the words using 2 different fonts. I had to play around with the size until it all fit. I taped them all together then flipped them over an colored the back with a charcoal pencil. I lined them up on the board and traced around each letter. Once done I colored them in with a sharpie, sanded and finished with dark wax.

    Thank you sue. I did a lot of research and thanks to all the wonderful tutorials on hometalk I found a method that worked for me. It was definitely trial (a few) and error (a whole bunch) :)
