I really like woodburning and also crafting items that are practical and useful. I designed my Garlic n Herb sign using stencils for the letters and pyro paper to transfer the designs on to the wood. The pyro paper copies your image using a laser copier and then you can woodburn right through the paper.
After I applied the green paint I took a rag which I had watered down and rubbed the wood to get the green stained affect. Then I transferred all the designs and woodburned the outlines before filling in the letters.
I used colored oil pencils to color in the garlic...
I will be sealing the entire sign after I add 3 dowels for hanging the garlic and drying the herbs. There is also a picture hanger on the back for placing on the kitchen wall near my cooking area!
