Signs I made for a Karate fundraiser. I messed them up by trying to spray them with a water based paint (Liquitex) and just about ruined them. I ended up ‘route planing’ them over and basically starting over.
If I didnt commit to doing these, I would have prolly scraped them all~
I sprayed the signs with the Liquitex Spray Paint…. then I could NOT sand it off (leaving just the inset work…which was my plan) So, I ended up completely re~routing them and hand painting them with the ‘cheapo’ acrylic paint.
I know there HAS to be a better way….but from now on, I will hand paint the color.
I did ruin a 3rd sign that I didnt try to ‘fix’.
I REALLY need to find GUIDANCE how to ‘finish’ signs. Does ANYONE have any suggestions as to HOW to finish signs?
Besides the wasted money, the time and effort I do put into these…I cannot keep ‘ruining’ them, wasting all my time and effort…...
Any thoughts and criticisms are welcome!
