Bigger is Better AIR challenge for Imagine, COLE

Imagine is featuring this fun project on their blog today along with another really cool BIG word project, go check it out!

This project is a perfect example of buying something with the full intent of completing a project but never actually getting around to working on it . . . I’ve had these letters for about 2 years, maybe even more.  Insert a blush here!  When the challenge to create something Bigger and Better came along it was finally time to decorate these 9 ½ inch tall letters that spell our family name.  The Sierra Pacific Crafts Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) letters were painted with a mixture of Creative Medium mixed with Versa Magic Jumbo Java ink.  This gives a nice glossy color in one coat that dries quickly.  Several stencils and Creative Medium Metallic in Gold mixed with a small amount of Copper finishes the look.  The stenciling was completed in several steps with drying time in between to avoid smearing.  This fun wall d├ęcor was easy to create in an afternoon which included dry time and was ready to hang on the wall with small Velcro hangers.  Our name is now proudly hanging above the coat rack my husband built in the entry way of our home.
