Some signs my fiance and I made tonight. Made out of CDX plywood. Cracked paint look. Courtney hand painted the letters. Will be used for decorations at our wedding in June. Thanks for looking!

Sweet. Nice lettering.

Does everyone at the wedding sit on bucket chairs? That would be cool.

You two look like you are having a lot of fun. Good for you guys.

Very Nice job on the hand lettering. From a quick look at the pictures I was expecting to read that you had somebody laser them for you.

Very classical lettering. Love it. I just finished a while back making signs for my brother’s wedding on old rustic fence boards and different little pieces from those fence boards as the lettering. I’ll have to post that project. By the way… how did you get the paint to crack like that? I know there’s a few differnt ways but curious on yours.

hey Firewood, How we did it was to use Elmer’s Glue. Paint the wood black (or brown, or some dark color). Once that dries, spread Elmer’s Glue all over it – use a brush and get a nice even coat on it. Let the glue dry until it gets tacky (1-2 minutes), then paint the white over top of it. It’ll crack in which ever way your paint strokes are (for the top coat – white). Its really simple!

I believe the paint needs to be an acrylic paint. Spray paint doesnt work

So nice.
Wonderful that you make these signs your self for the wedding, to share the time before and then be united to share the time after.
I wish you both all the best for the wedding,
