As I've mentioned on some other project posts, The ManFlesh's first novel will be published in February. First time authors who are not otherwise famous need to do a lot of their own marketing and publicity. So I helped him put together a cosplay photo shoot including making this banner for a prop.



I made the text on my computer and printed it out the right size to fit in my opaque projector, then traced the letters onto this canvas that I stapled to the shop wall. After that, I hand painted what I'd traced, then stained up the cloth with tea, coffee, and a wood stain made with vinegar and rusty iron bit.



At 38" it was jussssst too wide for a dowel, so I cut some PVC pipe we had lying around to 37.5" so it wouldn't show. Then threaded jute rope also from stash through it. I also stained the rope with tea and coffee.

Here it is in the photo shoot.

Looks great, especially in the sepia photo! I'd swear it was real.

DO IT! It's tedious and a bit time consuming, but it's not at all hard.
