Here it is! My first attempt at chalk lettering.
|Board primed and ready to go.|
|Staring it off, trying to get spacing and lettering right.|
|Using my computer for references.|
|Chalk and white chalk pencil from my head and figure drawing classes. Is it nupastel?|
|Taking it's rightful place in our home.|
Things I learned:
1. While drawing use a rag in your non-drawing hand to brace against the board, so that your hand/fingers won't leave prints/dark spots.
2. Use references for fonts and drawings- duh.
3. Use a ruler.
4. Plan letter and word spacing better next time.
5. Take a picture and look at it on your computer before deciding if it is really done yet or not. It was easier to see the imperfections in a picture than in real life because it gave me some distance and I could see all of it at once.
