INSTRUCTIONS

NOTES: Make sure the wooden blocks are sanded smooth prior to painting. Let the paint dry fully between layers for optimal coverage. Protect the working surface with newspaper or other disposable material. Wash the paintbrushes between colors and coats to keep the paint colors from mixing together.

  1. Paint each of the wooden letters with Champagne Gold. (You may need one or two layers to achieve complete coverage.)
    Step 0 Example
  2. Paint the front and sides of the tallest block (10”) with Ruby. Let dry, then paint a second coat as needed.
