Learn lettering, basic shading, brush handling, and antiquing techniques in acrylic. You will be given enough information that you can try making your own signs at home. This sign is a simplified version of a sign that hangs today in Colonial Williamsburg. It measures 1-15/16” x 1-3/8” and is painted in acrylic on a prepared wood panel. Each student will receive an instruction booklet with step-by-step photos. Supplies required include: flat brush approximately 1/8”— 1/4” wide, sharp hard pencil, Scotch Magic tape, magnification (such as MagEyes), light with an extension cord, and a smock or apron if you tend to be messy. A 20/0 pointed round brush is included in the class fee, but feel free to bring your own fine brushes if you wish.
