My favorite signs to make are ones that look aged and weathered – like they’ve been hanging on a building or inside a store for years and years. It isn’t hard to create that look at all.
Normally, I distress them to give them an aged look, but since I had just created some tester boards to review Valspar Crackle Glaze, (read that post for crackling directions). I thought I’d see how well it worked to paint over the crackled paint and turn it into a sign.
For this sign, I used the Feed Sack Stencil, but I only used the top and bottom rows of words, since my pallet board wasn’t wide enough for all of them.
The painted lettering adhered just fine over the crackled paint.
Here’s an up-close look.
I have this sign hanging in my entry way right now, but it’s available for purchase in my online shop here.

I’ve been brainstorming some new signs to make, so hopefully I’ll have some finished soon to share.
