Hello friends! I am back today with another blog talking all about how I paint my acrylic wedding signs! The brushed acrylic wedding sign look is so trendy and popular right now, and I just love making them! I am walking you through step by step how to achieve this brushed back look using the new DecoArt Americana Decor Texture Paint. This new paint from DecoArt is incredible for painted backs and gives visible dimension to the sign, I am loving it!
For today' s project I wanted to achieve an ombre painted back color from gold to silver. I started with the Champagne texture paint in the top left corner of the acrylic sign. With a light hand I brushed the paint back and forth over the acrylic. This paint is incredible because it has a thicker consistency and coats the back of the acrylic perfectly!
Once I painted the champagne color half way down the sign, I started the same process with the silver paint. This time I brushed the silver paint on the bottom right corner of the sign up until I almost met the champagne. You can see in the photo above the raised effect this texture paint gives to the sign, it is beautiful! I find it very import to use thick quality paints for my painted back signs to ensure the sign is not see through at all from the front.
Next, using a light hand I simply blend the two colors together at the middle! I make sure to drag a little of each color over to ensure the blend is smooth and seamless. I drag the silver up slightly towards the left hand corner, and the champagne slightly toward the right bottom corner, and that is it! This process is very easy, but adds so much life and color to your signs. Luckily these DecoArt Americana Decor Texture Paints are available in nine beautiful colors and will be available beginning in March at Michaels! After painting the sign, I finished it off with the bride and groom's names, and I just love how it turned out!
If you use these texture paints let me know what you create with them!
