After everything has dried, you can start painting your project. For the scarecrow side, use dark wood stain for his hat and gold for his face. Brush on, allow to set a few minutes, then wipe away excess with a rag.
Once your stain has dried, you can start adding the painted elements. Print out your template here. Cut out your pieces and tape together. Then tape in place on your sign. Add transfer paper glossy side down under the template. NOTE: Use black transfer paper over lighter paint and white over darker paint.
Use a pen to trace around your template and then remove the paper. You will be left with lines as a guide for your paint.
Start filling in those lines with the paint colors of your choice. NOTE: Each element will take 2 to 4 coats of paint and you need to be sure to allow each coat to dry before adding another layer.
Then just keep repeating these steps for each element on the scarecrow side.
Allow that side to dry completely before flipping over for the reversible snowman side.
