I saw a cute little sign in the October issue of Country Living magazine and decided to try my hand at my own version.
-unfinished wood plaque from Michael’s
-black & white craft paint
-white paint pen
-crow image (got mine from fotosearch)
-white transfer paper (in the oil paint/canvas section of Michael’s)
First paint with primer, let dry. Then paint 2 or more coats of black paint…’til you’re satisfied with the color! Lay your white transfer paper on the plaque, trace your crow image and the initial you printed out from your computer. I increased the size of the crow to fit using my copier.
Then fill in with white craft paint. I put 3 coats on and then finished all the edges again with the paint pen. I used a ruler to do the border line. And went over it with a paintbrush, then again with my paint pen. WAIT for each coat of paint or paint pen to dry before doing another.
