DIY Scrabble Tiles

So a coworker of mine hired me to stretch a custom canvas for her cousin a few weeks back, it was 5'x4'. While speaking to her she saw online some scrabble tiles and wondered if I could make her some for her daughters room. Of course you know what my answer was.... ABSOLUTELY!  So I went home and cut out 7"x7" squares from some left over wood from a previous project, sanded them down, rounded the edges and voila. I hand painted these in black, and then gave them one coat of polycrylic to give them a nice shiny finish. Plus it helps protect them. I like how they turned out, and I think I like them better with this unfinished feel as well. Don't mind the shell casings there in the background, I work at a scrap yard and we find them almost daily in the yard. I know, I know, the thrill of danger right?


Another satisfied customer! These are the Scrabble
tiles I custom made for some one recently in
their new home.

More Sketching

Here's a quick lion sketch I did today in ink. Just more practice. Enjoying a new sketchbook I got for my bday last year.
