How To make A Welcome To Our Home Plaque
How I start this plaque is to develop a design. Since it is fall I decided to go with that theme, besides, I love the colors. Proxxon Scroll Saw is going to make this a snap.
I draw a shape I want for the plaque and leaves, then I play with it till I am happy with the layout.
Now I am ready to get the wood for the job. I know we has a surplus of laminated flooring and decided to use some of that. This makes the project very inexpensive.
Plaque cut out. Lovely Color no paint needed.
This Proxxon Delta mini sander is a favorite tool . While your sanding don't forget that you need to smooth the sides of the leaves. This tool makes getting into the curves and narrow areas no problem.
Now begins the painting. After the first two coats of white as a base I used Plaid Pickling paint # 5828 a soft yellow. I picked the areas of the leaf that I wanted yellow leaving some areas white.
