  • Painting wooden letters


    wonder if you can help me, I'm new to the site and have just started making childrens crafts for friends etc. At the moment I am painting the letter with emulsion by hand with paintbrush & the plaques are being painted with a small roller. The plaques are quick to paint but the letters are taking some time.

    Is there a way that I can get a good finish quickly? possibly dipping them somehow?

    Hoping you can help :-)

    Thanks x

    I use a paintbrush on mine. It's the only way I know of getting a good finish. You could try experimenting with the size of brushes but all I can say is you do get quicker with time and practice.

      Keep practicing and the time will come when you will see the finishing in your work which always wanted and keep trying different sizes of brush. All the best

        You could practice dipping them for the main coat of colour in a tray of paint then using a dry brush to give it a smooth finish perhaps? I stress to practice this as its only an idea! There is always spray paint but would take a couple of coats.

          I was thinking the same as just painted up numbers for a wooden clock.... i don't think i can achieve a nice finish by dipping it... I was thinking about the spray paint too but tbh i would need so many colours to buy as making a multicolored one so for now i will stick with the brush... I am sure this is how everyone do it... ? x
