Giant molding letters
Guess I'm on a letter kick since I just made the EAT Sign from molding also
These are a little different and MUCH bigger, almost 2 feet tall
This is 6" wide molding and I cut to size with a compound miter saw.
I glued and screwed small wood pieces to the backs to connect them
On the front I added squeeze caulk in dots all around the edges for a little more detail.
I've used caulk for years to make designs, dots, swirls, etc. on pieces...fun stuff
Here they are assembled and with the dried caulk design
spray painted brown
dry brushed with gold acrylic paint
Then I used watered down black paint and "antiqued" by brushing all over and then wiping off with soft cloth. After the black I ended up brushing on just a bit more gold
I added hooks on the back for hanging and they are ready to go
I'll be taking these to my booth where I sell my pieces
