My nephew Dexter’s letters are complete. I didn’t do a how-to, but I will tell you a few things about the project. I bought the plain letters at Michael’s. It’s not the best place to get art supplies, but it was the most convenient.
I painted the designs on the letters with acrylic paint. I mostly used paintbrushes to paint the letters, but I also used a rubber stamp (for the rain drops) that I made out of an eraser. When I had painted the designs, I attached ribbon to the back of each letter using a staple gun. After that, I added a few details with puffy paints (fabric paint). This isn’t a necessary step, but I find that it adds some dimension and a little shine.
I apologize for the less than perfect pictures once again. They really look a lot better in person! Let me just leave you with this. The man himself, Dexter Constantine Niphakis. Yes, he will do great things!
