Custom, hand painted stall signs look great on a horse's stall. This tutorial shows you step-by-step how you might go about hand painting a stall plaque for your horse.
Apply a thin coat of paint to the face and edges of the board. For a rustic feel allow some of the woods natural color to show through. Allow to dry.
Print horse's name on a piece of paper in your desired font. For longer names, more than one piece of paper may be required.
Position paper on your board and trace letters with a ballpoint pen. This will emboss the wood.
Use your thinner paintbrush to fill in the letters of your horse's name with contrasting paint. You may need to freehand parts that weren't embossed properly or you can even freehand the whole thing if you like!
