"B" is for Biscuits

A handpainted biscuit sign.


(And some real biscuits too.)


This sign measures 24"w x 10"h.


My inspiration came from Maggie at Midwestern Sewing Girl.  She had taken this image:



image from Pinterest

And painted it on a rug:

I loved the image so much I painted it on a sign:



Here's a little bit of the process:

1. Primed and painted old wooden door piece.
2. Printed letters using fonts to mimic original sign, lay out on wood:


3. Trace the letters and paint (first coat Robin's Egg blue).


4. Paint 2nd layer, off white.


5. Sand to distress (by hand with 220 grit), stain with Antique Brown, seal with poly.



This one is going to the shop space.
