Hello! Today I would like to show you how I made this wooden sign from a scrap of wood.
Supplies used today are:
Pictured here are all my supplies. I found a piece of wood from a sign shop dumpster. Its three ply. Pretty nice wood but the grain is going the wrong way for my sign.
I used Gesso from the Media line at DecoArt and covered my entire piece of wood.
Next I mixed some black with white liquid acrylic pain to make grey and created some lines to represent three separate pieces of wood. As if it were nailed together I even created nail holes with paint. Next I mixed the cadmium red with white to create pink. I lightly brushed both the pink and grey colors over my entire piece to resemble a worn out or distressed look.
Lastly I touched up my stencil lettering with some red cadmium and silver metalic paints from the DecoArt Media Line. I just used my fingers to lightly touch the raised lettering.
And that's it! Fabulous DIY wooden decor!
