Like many of my fellow bees before me (like Penguin, Cookie, and Spring Roll), I too made a DIY aisle runner. I bought a “deluxe fabric aisle runner” from eBay for $20. I was hoping it was a but more deluxe than it was. It is fabric, but it is kind of a stiff fabric. It’s much like napkins at Ruby Tuesday; not paper, but not quite fabric either.
I used a light table to trace the monogram I created in Adobe Illustrator. The light table probably wasn’t necessary, but it made the job go pretty quickly.
I then used Liqutex Basics acrylic copper paint and filled in the lines. It took a couple hours and a couple layers of paint. It took a bit longer and required more paint than I anticipated.
I made sure to keep the paint thick so you could see the brush strokes.
