I'm wanting a bright happy sign for my wall!
I know you might want one too -
so here are some details.
Using fence boards,
cut 9 pieces
Cut a utility panel for the back
measuring 8" x 48".
Connect with screws on back.
The sign will measure 9.25" x 49".
Give the whole piece a brown wash.
(water down some brown paint and brush on)
You could use stain too.
The water/paint wash will dry faster.
Alternate yellows on boards.
I used some egg yolk yellows, toy truck yellows,
yellow ochre, and light apricots
and randomly shaded and overlapped areas
on the second coat.
I had to run a brown brush along the edges afterward
to get the worn look that I wanted.
I used Arial Bold font to create my lettering,
then pencil transferred onto my yellow background.
Then paint white lettering in with a flat brush.
Ta Da! Happy Art.
I hope you enjoy this project,
