Ok... LOL...I do this for my ceramic work LOL
  1. go to your local office supply store... office depot, office max, whatever ask for a ream of "CARBONLESS COPY PAPER" or "NCR Paper"
  2. pick a font & font size to print a name out with...trial and error with regular paper so as not to waste the good stuff.
  3. determine which side is the carbony side... insert as bottom as determined by your printer so name is printed on the non carbon top... much like printing a photo
  4. Print
  5. align paper on what you are decorating with name use a ball point pen and now trace the printed name outline... if you printed the name on the proper side when you remove paper a tracing of the name will be the wood or whatever...
  6. paint to perfection
HTH

Oh that's a wonderful idea with the carbonless paper!! Kudos to ya!!

I was gonna say: cut your own stencil!
You probably already have a woodburner, get some stencil plastic, print out the letters in size needed, lay down, cover with glass, put on plastic and cut out with the woodburner tip.
Tadaaa.... your own stencil..... in any font ya want (just keep in mind that the middle WILL fall out of the O if ya cut it out LOL - leave in little "bridges" - you can always paint over them later) oh boy, guess how I know THAT!!

HTH a bit,
Sabine

i paint everything else, but use a paint pen for the lettering. so much more control over a pen then a brush. at least for me!

Almost a year ago I tried to do the plaque and I gave up because my writing was terrible but thanks to you ladies I'm going to dust the plaque and give it another try. Thanks Kaneohegirl for such a great suggestion!!!
