It's great fun. You should try it. Don't like it? Paint over it! Brilliant.
We chose a favorite Doctor Who quote and then chose quite possibly the world's hardest font. I printed the quote on paper, landscape, and then used a charcoal pencil on the back to trace the words on. I then proceeded to tape the papers back on the wall and with my hands, tried to rub the charcoal on the wall. Did not work, no matter how I rubbed.
Being a learned letterboxer/stamp carver, I knew a trick. Acetone aka nail polish remover. A bit of that on a cotton ball, and boom! The pencil transferred to the wall where I painstakingly painted the words while on a stepladder. Talk about painful knees.
When I was done, this is what I had.
|I have issues with straight lines. Deal with it. :)|
This is to go along with the Harry Potter quote we already have on the walls.
As well as the I.T. Crowd quote I purchased as a vinyl!
LOVE IT! Don't recognize it?
(Yes, we can sing the song. All 4 of us. GREAT SHOW! Available on Netflix.)
So those are the 3 quotes on our walls so far.
