Custom Prop (Painting Idea)

January 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

For a Valentine's Day shoot I wanted to use the letters L, O, V, and E and paint them in gold. I will be using these letters together and individually for my next photographic session. I went ahead and purchased a few items I needed at Michaels and Hobby Lobby,  which included the letters, a wooden frame, and few spray paints.

The frame will be painted in gold, after it dries I will be adding a top layer of crackling spray to give it an antique finish look. I will be painting the other side in black finish to be able to have two different colors and finishes, that way I will have a variety to choose from.

I have also purchased a black frame at a garage sale and spray painted it in gold, but made sure to use blotchy spray to give it a unique look. (SEE IMAGES BELOW).

Wet Paint L-O-V-E in gold finish. I did several coats just to be sure I evened every angle out.

Crackle top quote when applied. The top coat will get crackled and you will be able to see the gold through the cracked lines which gives the frame a nice 'POP'.
