Hand Lettered Pallet Sign

  • August 2, 2016


Being a hand lettering enthusiast (more about my love for hand lettering and calligraphy soon),  I find it very therapeutic when I am able to sit down and practice my technique every day.  This project, however, tested my natural ability with a totally different surface to write on (bumpy and uneven) and also drawing the larger size lettering (I am used to hand lettering on 8 x 10 mixed media paper or smaller).  Spacing between the letters and between the text can always be a little tricky not to mention writing the words in a straight line but we will tackle that together with some tips below.

  • This looks beautiful! The lettering on the rough surface is perfect for the rustic look of the sign. Did you use the chalk for the outline, then paint over it?
