Well I learned 2 valuable lessons from this sign.
1: hand painting a wood cut out SUCKS. I’m either investing in some damn spray paint or will be painting my wood before cutting from now on and
2: trying to hand paint this with a 2.5 year old “helping” is never advisable!! Haha he ended up with white paint all over his hands and arms!
I do love that I can use the parts I cut out to make another sign though. Just trying to figure out what color to paint the second one
So nice to be able to use the positive and negative images - well done!
So the problem is that he is hand painting and needs spray paint? Not the conclusion I would have drawn, but I don’t have kids so what do I know.
It’s a very nice sign.
No no, the problem is he is “hand” painting, instead of wood painting
Love the sign, and it’s always great to make with kids even if it takes longer…
Hahaha oh my god I can’t imagine giving my kid some spray paint and letting have at it . The mess would be epic!
Exactly . He was really “hand, arm, and body” painting. Still, I love doing things like this with my kid. Hardest thing I’ve done so far is let him “help” when I bake. The kitchen gets covered in flour but he loves it and he will always eat whatever he helps to make.
The paint work can be a bit of a pain. Love the sign!
I always regret weeding a project before painting an engraving. Always.
