I love these whatever they're made of seasonal signs I find at Dollar Tree. You can paint them, decoupage them, glitter them, vinyl them or do whatever your imagination comes up with. I chose paint and dots!
- Eek Sign (Dollar Tree)
- Black and White Acrylic Paint ( Craftsmart, Michaels)
- Dotting Tools ( See Below for Pic)
This is the unfinished sign. I did the insides of the letters and the edges with a small brush first, then painted the front and the back in a couple of coats of flat black Craftsmart paint.
You want to make sure you get all of the nooks and crannies of the letters so it just takes a little patience. Spray paint would also work.
Once you've got your sign painted, time to "dot it up". I bought a set of Ball Stylus dotting tools on Amazon and they really are great for making consistent dots. I also love that the paint wipes easily off the metal. From here, just go with whatever your flow us. I used different sizes and eyeballed my pattern. These are great for mandalas too.
I started with larger dots and then filled in using smaller ones, filling in the exclamation point the most.
