This is another sign I recently made using the same technique as my bracket shaped sign.
First I find rough pallet wood and glue the pieces together side by side. For this sign I chose to use uneven lengths of wood.
Then I paint the sign solidly, getting into all the crevices. This sign was painted black first:
Once this is dry, the sign is sanded which leaves paint in the low spots but bare wood in the high spots.
Now the magic, brush a dark stain over the whole sign:
Then paint a beautiful saying on the wood:
This “Faith” sign is 12″ wide and 17 1/2″ tall with a sawtooth hanger on the back. It is available through me by email, or at my etsy shop for $40.
