My initial idea was to use glitters or maybe ribbons to decorate each letter. But when I started to paint remembered a technique that I was taught when I learned to paint ceramic, the dry brush. (Now that it is finished I have occurred even more ideas, but they will have to wait for other occasions).

I bought these at Hobby Lobby cardboard letters at the beginning of week. As did not have the letter E I had to wait until Friday to be able to finish this project.2012-01-31 007

Once they are dry, with a round brush, apply any other color ( in this case white) with the dry brush technique. This technique is very simple. Wet your brush with a bit of paint, then you pass your brush on a piece of paper not out almost nothing of painting. Then you pass your brush on the surface you want to paint. Depending on that so dry use your brush and in direction to do it you can do that they are to your liking. As always, a little experience!
