1′ x 8″ pine board cut to 23.5″ long
Plaid Folk Art Thunder Grey or Butter Pecan
Delta Ceramcoat Black (I prefer this one for lettering)
Plaid Wicker White
Plaid Burnt Umber
Plaid Real Gold Metallic (optional)
#6 round brush
Loew Cornell White Nylon brushes
Rustoleum Spar Varathane, waterbased
After cutting the board to size I sanded the corners and edges for a worn effect. The raw board had a couple knots in it. To treat knots to prevent them from coming through the paint with a dark splotch I seal them as best I can with a coat of varathane. I talk more about this in my video.
Once that is dry I base paint with Butter Pecan. Let dry, then put on some Crackle Medium. For more on how I use Crackle Medium click HERE.
After the Crackle is dry I paint on my top coat, this one I did two coats. Let dry.
Now you lay on your pattern for you lettering or free hand sketch some lettering if you are good at that. Using graphite paper transfer your lettering.
With a round or flat brush, whichever works best for you, fill in the lettering with black paint staying inside the lines. For more on lettering Click Here.
While letting the lettering dry you can start on the boho roses. I did not get step by step photos, I may add that at a later time. But the video has it all.
Base paint some loose circles where you want to place your roses. You don’t have to be tidy here just get a nice base coat sketched in.
While your base coat is drying you can use Floating Medium and Burnt Umber to place shadows all along the right side of your lettering. This will create a shadow which will give your sign a more dimensional look. Starting from the center and using a round brush paint on some small arcs, alternately paint wider and wider arcs tapering the ends and making the centers wider.
Don’t worry, the video shows it all.
I paint the outer edges with the Butter Pecan and then a coat of the Real Gold, you can’t see them but it just creates a nice finishing touch to have the outer edges finished pretty. Seal with the varathane and hang your beautiful sign.
