So I had this thought to put together a BOO sign and make each letter a monster. I also want to do a SCARY sign with the same idea. but that will have to wait awhile.
The B I made into a witch, the O into a Mummy and the second O into Frankenstein
I used acrylic paint and added about 3 coats of paint (i think) This is because the letters I wanted at the craft store were all sold out so I had to get the pre-painted letters which made it a kind of pain to paint. I had to do a layer of color and then I had to do another layer of texture and then another of layer to cover up the rest of the white. Then it was just spot coating after that.
The base was a little easier to paint but took a few coats of paint as well. It was an unfinished base so the wood soaked in a little of the paint but I think this one only took 3 coats of paint. Then I drew the webs on with a pencil and used it as a guide. It was just a lot easier that way. I used a thin paint brush with black paint to paint on the web lines. After it dried I was able to erase the visible pencil marks that remained.
