I finally tackled a job I've been putting off.
Painting a menu board.
I found the graphic at The Graphics Fairy.
I've had it for a few months.
Since I've discovered my new fabulous liner paintbrush and painted the dresser -
Bring on The Menu.
I started with the plain board.
(it's not staying purple.
- I took my enlarged copy of the graphic, taped it where I wanted it and put transfer paper underneath it.
- I TURNED THE BOARD SO I WOULD BE LOOKING A IT UPSIDE DOWN.
- Then traced the graphic.
- I KEPT IT UPSIDE DOWN as I painted it.
- This keeps the perspective. OR.. keeps the letters shape true.
I painted the solid cream first.
Next, on a paper plate I made watered down version of the cream -
and painted the shadowy highlights.
Right side up.
This is part of the Bistro wall I am working on.
I'll show the final product in a few weeks.
Until then, plan your menu.
(Thank you to The Graphics Fairy!)
