Mural #1 South Wall above the barber shop

This was a two day project and a near 3rd degree sunburn for me. It was HOT! And a whole lot of fun.

Yes it rained at the end of the first day, but thankfully it didn't ruin the paint. Thankfully.

A sign painters trick is to use the straight lines of the bricks in your layout. You can also use it for making your border an even width around.

Now that we have the letters all pounced up on the wall, its time to get to business!

The first few letters felt like it was taking a half hour per letter.. so I started working faster to get it done while the day light was on.
