About This Class

In this class your will learn how to create a name design in a vintage style using a recycled piece of timber. We will look at how to prepare the timber, make layers of paint and sand them back to get a vintage look. We will then choose a good font to use for the name design and transfer it onto the timber. We will then paint the typography and sand it back again to get the desired finish.

The finished painting will be perfect as a personalised gift, who is that special someone you would make this for?
