Like always I have several projects going at one time. This is a fall pumpkin welcome sign that I made to take to the little consignment shop close to home, where I’ve been selling my woodcrafts.
For this project all you need is an aged fence slate, acrylic paint; two different shades of green, dark orange, and black.
First take your orange paint and dry brush the entire front, and sides of your fence slate.
You want some of the aged wood showing through, so by dry brushing it on you will be applying a thinner coat which will allow the wood to show through, instead of a thick coat of paint.
Once dry you can paint a couple leaves at the top with your lighter green paint, and use the darker for your leaf veins.
Then use your black paint for your lettering. I free hand everything. The hardest part is trying to keep letters the same size, so just use a ruler to measure if needed.
I almost forgot to take my finished pictures, it was getting late so I brought them in to take my pictures. (No I don’t have yellow walls. Don’t know why they look yellow). Anyway I got my pictures (-;
