INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Sand the entire surface of the wooden board before painting.

  1. Paint the entire board in Navy; use a damp rag to wipe the stain off, scrubbing in order to reveal the grain underneath. (The best way to do this is in sections, to prevent the stain from drying and to make it easier to get the vintage/distressed effect.)
  2. Paint each frame entirely in Everlasting.
  3. Paint in the baseball stripes using a fine brush and Rouge. (Keep in mind that one side of the stitching faces one way and the other side faces the opposite way.)
  4. Paint the entire frame in Clear Creme Wax. Before it dries, apply Golden Brown Creme Wax and wipe it away using a dry rag. (This will create a vintage/used baseball look.)
  5. Measure out equal distances for the frames and hammer small nails in place. Insert the images you want to use and hang the frames in their prospective areas.
