Over the weekend I decided to try my hand at hand painted signs. I had picked up some cedar shakes at the Habitat for Humanity Restore a few weeks back. It was a learning curve, but I did manage two different styles. The first one I painted with a flat latex paint in a green and stenciled the words on with a white acrylic. After the paint dried I distressed it with 120 grit sandpaper and sealed It.
The second sign I left natural and again hand stenciled the letters with white acrylic, distressed it with course sand paper and sealed it. I see more sign making in my future!
