INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Mix the Paint Adhesion Medium and Raw Umber in a 1:1 ratio. Paint the mix onto the sign; allow to dry; and re-apply. Let dry. Once dry, spread the Crackle Paste around the corners and in random places in the center. (See photo for placement.) Let dry.
    Step 0 Example
  2. Once the Crackle Paste is dry, paint the entire surface of the sign in Warm White. Allow to dry and re-apply. To take the vintage look further, tint water with Raw Umber to make a wash. Paint the wash around the edges and over the crackle, leaving the center whiter than the edges.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Place the stencil toward the top of the sign. Using a stencil brush, paint the top line, "Marché Aux Fleurs" in Raw Umber. Paint the crown and "Paris" in Terra Coral. Highlight the crown and Paris with Warm White. Paint the mini-crate in Warm White and loosely dry-brush with the Raw Umber Wash. Let dry and glue the crate onto the sign with E6000 Glue. Allow to dry and add wild or dry flowers.
