This is the before...I wonder why I paid money for this sign. It seems so ugly when I look at it now! Ha!
Here is a picture of the paper on the light box. You have to trace the letters on the back side, so the letters will be backwards when you are tracing them. This way you can simply flip the paper over and "shade" them onto the surface. Be sure to trace over the letters a few times. It will pay off in the end, trust me!
Be sure to shade really hard, so that the traced lines on the back side transfer.
This is what it will look like when you remove the paper. It's kind of hard to see, but this is the best picture I could get. Sorry :(
After this I painted them with a coat of basic black paint, then sanded over the entire board.
It turned out really well, or at least I think so! Here it is in its new home on our front porch.
Well there's the craft for the day. I made some more shirts for the kids. I will try to post those this week sometime.
