I painted this word as a finishing touch on a friend’s project. (He made a wooden board, painted a grid on it, and had me paint the word “love” on the top. Now he’ll put a sticky note for his wife in the square of each grid, one for every day of the month.)
– Computer printout. Measure how big you need your text and create accordingly (I used Photoshop Elements 4.0).
– Graphic transfer paper
– Paint and fine paintbrush.
Print out your text. Tranfer onto wood via the transfer paper. Paint two coats of paint over the outline you’ve created, letting each coat try between applications.
Not too hard and nice looking results!
