My project was to finish my sons water table with a cute label. Now, what you are going to do is take a piece of chalk, white, colored, anything works. And run it along the backside of the paper. Cover the letters completely.
Do as many layers you think you need to cover completely. Turn, and gently tap off any excess.
Tape the paper exactly where you want the lettering to be.
Take a pencil, pen anything with a sharp point and trace the lettering. What this will do is transfer the chalk to the surface as an outline. Do this for the entire word.
Remove the paper when you are done tracing, and you will have an outline of the word. Finally, you will paint, color, draw in the lettering.
I used a small brush to line and fill with outdoor paint. And there you have it! Easy, DIY lettering without the fancy machines!
