Vintage Coke Hand-Painted Exterior Wall Sign

I have always liked old buildings especially the ones with the hand painted wall signs. I searched the web for some images of signs I liked. I used a projector connected to the computer to save time drawing and traced the design with a silver permanent marker onto the removable wall. I painted the design with acrylic paints and sealed the bare bricks of the wall with Delta Cream Coat Matte Varnish.

  1. That's a really clever method to get the pattern, and the outcome looks terrific!

  2. I must admit the idea came to me because I was lazy and did not feel like taking the time to draw it freehand. But I used that "time" painting the design! The whole project only took a few hours so it was one of my better ideas.
