Bus Scrolls

This is not an original idea, but I like the look of bus scrolls and the idea that they can be personalized.

I used plywood and painted it black.  I planned the lettering on my computer to get the spacing properly and then printed it on my printer.  Since I'm working on black, I couldn't use the carbon paper I normally use, so I used a grey chalk pencil and scribbled over the back of the letters.  Then I traced the letters and filled them in with white paint by hand. I used a semi-dry brush technique which meant the letters are not all completely solid.

These are all my local communities, which I painted as a sample:



For sale, as are all the things I make, just let me know what cities or towns you would like.
