. . I’ve gone on somewhat of a black sign making binge!!
This was my first try with gold paint for the lettering. The lettering came out a bit faint and hard to read unless you are at just the right viewing angle.
The BIGGEST problem with stencil painting is if you have too much paint on your utensil, you lines will ‘bleed’. So I couldn’t load MORE paint on my applicator sponge to darken this cool gold paint.
BUT, since there IS so little paint on your applicator, it dries very quickly. So what I did was go back over the whole thing with a secondary application to get my color darker. Worked like a charm!
Then I did some Ivory lettering on the black backgrounds, using the same ’2 coat’ technique.
ALL of these signs are available for purchase in my etsy shop .
And I did do some in my regular cottage colors.
And my FAVORITE newest stencil design!
And a slightly smaller 20″ x 10″ version for my etsy shop.
These signs will also be going into my mall booths over the next couple of weeks.
