These are fun, I’ve done several and my daughter likes long names so she can’t get them from other sources!

I was going to paint the background too, but it looked so good natural that I just left it alone. :slight_smile:

Lovely! Do you remember the font you used?

Not sure if it’s the same font she used, but I use Oduda (its very similar if not the same). It is free here: https://www.freefonts.io/oduda-rounded-font-free/

Thank you :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

one more question. I’m sorry I’m such a nag. How did you round the corners? I can’t figure it out on AI.

update: I figured it out lol… the most simple things seem to be so hard sometimes.

Hello,
This may sound like a couple of Noob questions, and it is because I am a total Noob as far as the painting and glueing portion of trying to create something like you have done here. You mention that you used acrylic paints for this Name Puzzle.

1.Would you be willing to share which brand you used?
2.Did you just glue the front to the back with plain wood glue?

Thank you again for showing this. My wife saw this and now I am scrambling to get 11 of them done before Xmas for all of my Kids Kids.

I don’t know if @geek2nurse is available today…she might be driving to Texas. (Your timing is just bad, but she might see it tonight.)

I do know that wood glue and clamping works really well for sticking wood together. CA glue (cyanoacrylate) also works and sets faster. (I prefer the bond with the wood glue, but I think I’m in the minority.)

She’ll need to let you know the brand of acrylics and spray lacquer.
