I had a request for a family tree. The person sent me an image of what she wanted and I was able to duplicate it fairly close. First I stained my wood.
Then I cut my tree in vinyl and weeded the tree out.
I then applied the vinyl to the stained wood and made sure that it was adhered well.
Then I painted the tree using a dry brush method…dipping the brush into the paint, painting most of the paint off onto a paper towel and then painting the plaque. The result was very faint so I kept applying layers until my white was nice and bright.
I then removed the vinyl. I cut leaves from various colors of vinyl and then cut the names from vinyl and applied them to the leaves. I then applied the leaves to the tree. I cut the family name and applied that. It was a fairly easy project and while the dry brush paint method was slow it was therapeutic and the result was no bleeding.
