This is my week for lettering projects and I'm trying some new fonts and stencils. I found this back splash at the salvage yard. It was so covered with mud and dirt I thought it had been in a fire and the wood was burned but I dragged it home anyway.
I scrubbed it down and painted it black and painted Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe on it with gold paint. As soon as I found this piece I knew that's what I wanted to do with it and the words fit perfectly like they were meant to be there.
But there was still a matter of the roughness that remained after being saturated with the mud for so long, so I sanded it back to give it an old shabby look.
I think now it has a perfect authentic antique look.
By the way, the name of this lettering is Chancery.
Thanks for your visits.
