Vinyl Stencil, Painted Inspirational Sign

My friend has an awesome saying and she asked if I could make it into a small sign. This video is how I went about making the sign.

The first attempt I messed it up so I tried it again. I used my silhouette machine and cut the saying out on some vinyl. I removed the letters using a dental explorer, used a piece of Peel and Stick to transfer the remaining vinyl to my piece of board, then painted it with white acrylic paint. I painted it three times, blotting just a small amount of paint on the project each time and waiting for it to dry between coats. This made all the difference in the world for bleeding under the vinyl! Thank you to everyone who gave me that bit of advice! Then when the final coat was dry I peeled off the vinyl. I added a verse to the back and since this is for my very good friend I chose Philippians 1:3 (NCV) which says, “ I thank my God every time I remember you…” (I will leave a link to a video showing how I do this transfer technique.)

When I prepared the back I messed up some of the paint on the front. So I had to go back with a small brush and touch up those areas. Lastly, I added some boards around the perimeter so that it looks like a small box.

Vinyl Stencil Sign, my first attempt

I have seen these neat painted signs all over the place and watched a video on how to do it. Instead of using vinyl letters you remove the letters and make a stencil with the remaining vinyl. In this video I try it. I messed up a few times but ended up with something that I like. I learned a lot along the way and look forward to making more signs like this.

Routered Faith Sign

I had a slab of juniper that I decided to make a sign out of. I put ‘faith makes things possible, not easy’ on the sign and tried using fire to burn it! I think the fire adds a nice soft caramely touch. I was going to trim up the slab around the words but Husband suggested I add something to it. So I found a picture of Jesus holding a cross and added that to the sign.

1 Peter 2:21 New Century Version (NCV) This is what you were called to do, because Christ suffered for you and gave you an example to follow. So you should do as he did.

Routered Picture of Ron and Tik

I have this great picture of my step dad and his puppy dog and I have wanted to make something with it for quite awhile. I asked Charles Dearing a few years ago to make a pattern out of it and I am finally now trying to router it. I think it looks pretty cool. I also put a verse on the back that I thought fit very well. It is Proverbs 17:17 which says, “A friend loves at all times…”

 

 

Routered Pet Portraits

I started this project using some pictures of Wally and Gibbs that I had cartoonized using an app on my phone. I figured it would be easier to router their pictures if they were drawings. I routered them and then added some other things to make a sign along with their portraits.

Job 12:10 (NCV) The life of every creature and the breath of all people are in God’s hand.

Sisters, Oregon Sign

There is a little town near us called Sisters and it is known for its three mountains. I wanted to make a sign with those three mountains and so I grabbed my router and made one!

Psalm 90:2 (NCV)

Before the mountains were born and before you created the earth and the world, you are God. You have always been, and you will always be.

Cy’s Corner Sign Intarsia Like

I made the routered sign for my new shop and ended up not really liking it. So I made another one to replace it. This time I made it intarsia like, so the house and the sun of my logo are what I enjoy doing the most! I took down the routered sign and put the new sign up in its place which is right next to the sticker map in the new shop!

Proverbs 16:3 (NCV) Depend on the LORD in whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.

 

Jesus Routered Sign

I tried routering differently than I had been doing it. I used a ¼ inch round nose bit to outline Jesus and then used an SC-50 bit to outline the smaller words. With more practice it could look nice and crisp, but I like the message of the sign, so here it is. 🙂

John 14:6 (NCV) Jesus answered, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.”
