I'm busting out the orange and black!
Fall. is. coming.
I always look forward to an autumn paint palette.
For this sign I used fence board
cut into five 11 1/2" pieces.
Attached with thin board on back...
and painted black with picture wire hanger.
For the base paint on the front and sides,
I used Folkart Burnt Sienna, Craftsmart Espresso Brown,
and a semi-gloss black paint.
Dip brush into water and then a mix of the three colors,
paint entire board front and sides
with more black on the edges.
Use an off white (I used Quill from Home Depot's Oympic)
and white to paint the front
leaving the edges dark.
No full coverage.
Okay, so now you have a light base.
Dry brush the oranges over the white
Mix white with Apricot and
white with Bright orange.
I sketched a pumpkin and crow
and transferred my design onto the striped base.
Raw Sienna Beak.
Raw Sienna and Pure Orange for right and bottom
Shade on Pumpkin.
Dry brush white and the lighter apricot mix
for center and left side.

Hope you try it!
