Wood letters, candle cuts (ThoughtsinVinyl.com)
Dixie Bell Paint (Mint Julep)
Foil, cardstock (Foiled paper - see the basic technique here)
eBrush (with siphon adapter)
Acrylic paint (off white, white, yellow, light orange, deep orange)
Small paint brush
brayer (see the technique I used here)
Xyron Creative Station (with permanent adhesive)
Glue (I used a hot glue gun, but you could use a good quality wood glue as well.
Using the eBrush and white/off-white paint with the siphon adapter, spray all of the pieces of the wood (front and sides). I got really good coverage and didn't use a whole lot of paint either. Let dry. If you want, you can put a second coat on, but my pieces didn't require a second base coat.
I wanted a little more gloss, so I lightly sanded the flame (to add a little tooth and remove the sealer) and added some glossy effects to the flames and set that aside to dry for a couple of hours. The glossy effects added a little more dimension too.
When all of the pieces are completely dry, assemble the melted wax to the candle bases.
I chose to use the technique from this post to apply paint to the J and Y for the remaining parts of the project. So much fun! and easy too.
Once the paint has dried on your wood, if desired, add a little more color along the edges. You can use the eBrush and the siphon and more Dixie Belle Paint. Sign your project! AND Don't forget to clean that embossing folder!
I really like how it looks! Thanks for stopping by today and please, drop by next week for another fun holiday home decor project featuring Dixie Belle Paint and the eBrush! For more projects featuring the eBrush and Cut-n-Boss, visit my blog!
