Our Faith Can Move Mountains - unique shaped sign



This is another sign I recently made using the same technique as my bracket shaped sign.

First I find rough pallet wood and glue the pieces together side by side. For this sign I chose to use uneven lengths of wood.

Then I paint the sign solidly, getting into all the crevices.  This sign was painted black first:


Once this is dry, the sign is sanded which leaves paint in the low spots but bare wood in the high spots.


Now the magic, brush a dark stain over the whole sign:


Then paint a beautiful saying on the wood:



This "Faith" sign is 12" wide and 17 1/2" tall with a sawtooth hanger on the back.  It is available through me by email, or at my etsy shop for $40.
