New Project: Part 2

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.
