Making some reclaimed wood wall hangings out of off cuts. Not quite completed yet (need lettering)...but…you get the idea.

Real neat. How did you get such crisp outlines? I’m assuming a stencil used, but I’ve always gotten bleeding of the paint.

Very cool work. Was curious if you’d be willing to share how you did the painting?

After seeing yours, I did a similar project.

On mine I printed out the deer silhouette, taped it down to the wood, traced around it with a ballpoint pen, and then used acrylic paint to paint inside the lines. The pen indention helped to keep the paint from bleeding too much, but my results don’t look as clean as yours.

You probably have better painting skills than I do, but was curious to see if your approach was different.
