How to Make It

  1. Base-coat the fronts and sides of the stretched canvases with beige. Let dry.
  2. Mix a glaze using glaze medium and dark brown acrylic paint.
  3. Brush the glaze over the canvas, then, while it's still wet, dab the canvas with a crumpled piece of plastic wrap to create the effect of crinkled parchment.
  4. Leave the corners and edges darker than the center. Let dry.
  5. Spray with sealer.
  6. Use a computer and word-processing software to set up and print the lettering onto computer iron-on transfer paper.
  7. Iron the lettering transfer onto the signs following the manufacturer's instructions.
