blessings to share in your home.
So large board wall art can express that sentiment
in your dining room.
I used 3 boards...
Two 1 x 8's. (which actually measure 7.25")
One 1 x 4 (which actually measures 3.5")
The boards are 48" long,
so the entire piece measures 18" x 48".
It can hang either vertical or horizontal.
I didn't have a place to hang horizontal to show you,
so I rotated the fork and spoon art
in photoshop to give you an idea
of how that would look.
After connecting the boards with a large sheet of utility panel
on back, I based in a brown wash and then
top coated in off white/white.
Lifting the paint brush before I get to the edges
leaves a brown edge.
I pencil transferred this pattern onto the board.
Then using tan and black,
I put both colors on my brush and started painting.
I shaded the bottom and right edges black
also shaded the entire outer boards black.
Using a dry chip brush, I added white highlights.
For the lettering I used a small flat brush
and pressed down and flat on all down strokes
and then lifted the brush onto it's side
for a fine line upstroke.
Because white paint filled in between the boards,
I took a butter knife and ran in between to get a
separated board look.
Large scale pieces are fun to make
because you can get art with impact
and it is budget friendly.
You can find details on the "Eat Drink and be Merry" sign here.
And this art will fit either a horizontal or vertical space.
I always appreciate your visit!
Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
