Paint the letters first with the Raw Umber and while they are still tacky and not yet dry….
…go over them with the Crimson. Blend, add some paint, take away, smudge with a paper towel, and have fun until it looks something like….
…THIS! See all that beautiful depth and faux-woody goodness? That’s what you’re going for here. If you keep messing with it while it’s wet and still drying, you’ll get this rich gorgeous look.
Take your glue gun and fill all the gaps of your letters with hot glue. Never underestimate the power of your hot glue ladies! Goop it on…and it will hold.
When your glue is set, simply place a few strategic nails on your wall and voila! Cute sign that cost you the price of your letters and a bit of your time.
