I’m loving plaid this year. My Christmas mantel is decorated with plaid, I just can’t get enough of it!
Today I’m sharing my plaid technique with you!
Here’s what you will need:
ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Multi-Surface with Advanced Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector 2093EL
Board, size of your choice
Three paint colors
- Paint pen for fine line.
- 120 Grit sanding block
- Paint the board. Use the lighter of your three paint colors. Allow paint to dry overnight.
- Measure and mark where you want your stripes to be. I found the center of the board and used a pencil to mark every two inches on the board.
- Use ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape Multi-Surface with Advanced Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector 2093EL and tape off your stripes.
- Paint stripes with the 2nd paint color. Allow paint to dry overnight. I used Multi-Surface due to the textured surface, but Delicate Surfaces is recommended for freshly painted surfaces (up to 24 hours).
- Tape off horizontal stripes. Prepare your glaze. Mix 2nd paint color with the ratio suggested on your glaze, mine was six parts glaze to one part paint.
- The glaze created a lighter version of your darker color.
- Lightly sand your board.
- I used a stencil and painted the words with a dark gray craft paint.
- I used purchased glittered letters for the word wonderful, they had an adhesive back on them. I also used a red paint pen and ruler to add the thin red lines. A total after thought, but I think it makes it look more like plaid.
Here’s the finished sign:
