Next we’re going to select our paint brushes
that we’re going to use to paint our craft with. I have here a variety of artist’s brushes,
that come in a pack. You can get these for about three dollars, real simple, real easy.
What we’re going want to do, I have here, this is a number eleven, that I’ve already
used. We’re going to use that today and it’s got a larger bristle. And that we’re going
to use for our base coat to coat the whole sign. Also, you’re going to want to select
a smaller brush for when you do your lettering. You don’t want to go too too small, something
about the size of a pencil eraser at the tip of the brush, and that’s going to be for your
lettering or if you want to make any kind of design as in clouds, or any birds. Those
are going to be great. Now also, as an alternative what you can use instead of these, is if you
have an old paint brush lying around the house, that say you’ve used for painting at the house,
you can use that for your base coat, because you’re going to have a pretty wide surface
to cover. And once you’re ready to do that you’re going to start to wet your paint brushes.
You want to get those bristles nice and wet and then you’re ready to begin painting.
