Just in time for the Halloween season! I designed this ‘un-welcome’ plaque out of 1/2 inch oak. While it can be left natural color, as in the second picture, I chose to stain it using some acrylic mediums. I used the DecoArt Weathered Wood crackle medium on the skull (pic 3) as well as a metallic glaze on the keys. For the bat, I used the Staining and Antiquing gel and a pearlescent black paint to give the oak an old and weathered look, with a slight shimmer. The piece measures approximately 16” wide from tip to tip of the bat wings. Thanks for looking!
