I started out running down to Hobby Lobby and wondered around the store for a good half an hour. While there, Eden took a crap that nearly clogged the toilet. It's not really important for the story, I was just proud of the little gal.
Just my luck, Hobby Lobby was having a sale on Mod Podge so I stocked up. Got some paint brushes and some foam brushes, acrylic black and metallic white paint and some canvases. We sprung for some stencils (four different fonts in 4 different sizes) and checked out to the tune of about $50. Not bad.
We went to dinner at McKay's Taphouse in Richland. (Strongly recommend. The bad review there was written on their busiest night so I feel bad for the guy, but it's really not that bad. Lots of beer on tap!) and proceeded home. I wanted to stop by Adventures Underground (yeah, I don't have a link for that one. Sorry guys) but they had closed early. I made do with what I had.
1. Foam Brush
2. Small Paint Brush
5. Your favorite books/comic books/art/what ever.
6. Paint of your favorite colors.
8. (optional) tea of coffee to dye your paper!
I chose Kurt Vonnegut because he also had doodles in all of his books and I didn't want my thing to be boring.
In the Oven
After I made about 30 copies of things, I Mod Podged them to the canvas. I waited for it to dry (took about 30-40 minutes) and stenciled my quote on. Once I get a little better at stenciling, this project will be a lot more fun.
