Hand-lettered Wooden Signs
|January 27, 2012||Posted by fozzy under Calligraphy|
The hubby’s coworker is getting married and his fiance had asked me to do lettering for her wedding signs. It was something I always wanted to do, and wanted to offer as a service. But I was initially hesitant because I didn’t have enough time to practice with a brush. Nor did she have enough time to get just the digitized calligraphy and have them printed. So I had to suck it up and get on with the painting.
It took me two tries to get the paint and wood to work for me (feels mighty different vs. a pen). Thankfully, I got the hang of it. YAY! It feels mighty good. It takes two careful coats to get the paint opaque enough over the stained wood.
Their wedding is tomorrow and I can’t wait to see how they look! These smaller planks below are to be used as photo booth props. Nice idea, huh?
