I have been working on getting the layers of paint on my numbers and letters for the past few days. I get up early and can get one coat on to dry before I leave for work in the morning and a second coat in the evening.
I was worried that the acrylic paint would not give the effect I wanted, but when I began sanding last night to remove some of the top layers to reveal the lower ones, I saw they worked just fine. Here you can see those I have sanded with a few I had not.
The difference the sanding made is perfect. Now I'll go back and do a little dry brushing of the dark brown to add a little more depth. Once I do, I'll be ready for the next step. It won't be long now until I can reveal what this will be.
