It may be April and I may be looking out the window at SNOW (ugh) but I've been painting sunshine in my studio using an SVG file from My Vinyl Designer! Today I'll show you a few of the vinyl stenciling and hand painting techniques I use.
First, I used this file two ways and as I am very thrifty, I use both the positive and negative pieces. By using the positive pieces I was able to hand paint the sun in the corner of the sign shown above and have it appear "behind" the letters.
On this sign, I used the negative piece on a multi-colored background.
I used three shades of yellow on the background.
For these signs, I used only two lines of the SVG file. The top sign was done with the negative and I used two colors for the lettering. I hand painted shadow lines on the large letters. The bottom sign features hand painted highlights on the letters.
