INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Let dry completely between painting steps.

  1. Apply a coat of White Gesso to the back and front of each hockey stick. Purposefully make the Gesso uneven in various spots to help achieve a vintage look.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint one coat of Carbon onto both hockey sticks with a foam brush.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Sand any parts of the wooden letter and wipe clean with a damp paper towel.
  4. Paint one coat of Carbon onto both sides of the letter.
  5. Paint a rough coat of Rustic over the hockey stick and wooden letter, purposefully letting the Carbon show through.
    Step 4 Example
  6. Go over the hockey sticks and wooden letter again with a random dry-brush of Carbon.
    Step 5 Example
  7. For the wooden letter, paint the front surface with a rough, dry-brush coat of New Life and paint the edges in the same way with Inheritance.
    Step 6 Example
  8. For the hockey sticks, use painter's tape to mask off thick stripes at the top of both sticks. (Be sure to line them up evenly.)
    Step 7 Example
  9. Dry-brush Inheritance in between the New Life areas on the hockey sticks, again making sure that Carbon and Rustic show through here and there.
    Step 8 Example
  10. Repeat the previous steps to create striping on the bottom of each stick.
    Step 9 Example
  11. Cross the two hockey sticks in a slight X pattern and attach one to the other using E6000 Glue according to package instructions.
  12. Attach the wooden letter to the top hockey stick with E6000 Glue.
    Step 11 Example

HELPFUL HINTS

When dry-brushing, wipe excess paint onto a paper towel until there is hardly any left on the brush before painting the surface.
