Anj....as you know Primitive isn't my fave...but these guy are awesome! I have seen several of John's patterns and you have one of the best....where did you find the wood or how did you age it?

Thanks for sharing!

Belle~ this piece of wood started off as a long snowman hanger that I got at the TS for 50cents! I cut the round head part into the pointy part of the sign, then sanded it all down. To make it aged, I painted the first coat black then I rubbed a candle in all the spots that I wanted it to look worn, especially around the edges. Then I painted my grey color over the top then after it dried, I sanded it. The wax makes the color not stick so good and it sands right off in a neat pattern. Then I went over it with a dark brown mixed with an antiquing medium. Glad you like it. I love most of John Sliney's designs.

Here you go again with another neat project. This sign is Great Anj. Those grins are making me grin from ear to ear. So fun.

I remember you doing this process on another project that I really enjoyed last year. Wanna share again?
