Instructions

  1. Stain the top and bottom of tavern sign with Walnut tint. Buff with old rag.
  2. Tape off various sizes of vertical stripes. Paint with your choice of colors. Remove tape and let dry.
  3. Tape over painted stripes and paint the unpainted areas your choice of colors. Refer to photo. Let dry.
  4. Draw tree shape on top of stripes and paint two coats of Green Chalkboard Paint. Tip: Cut a piece of paper as tall and wide as you want the tree: fold paper in half and cut a ½ tree shape. When you open the pattern back up, it will be the same on both sides. Position it on the sign and trace around it.
  5. Paint tree trunk Real Brown.
  6. Using liner brush and Metallic Gold, letter words on top and bottom of tavern sign. Hint: Put a piece of tape where you want the baseline to be – this will keep your writing straight.
  7. Let cure 24 hours. When completely dry, rub lightly with chalk to condition.
