Fun project that can easily be completed in less than a day, and the kids can join in for the painting.

Cut from a sheet of 4mm MDF, using a laser cutter. But you could do it with a scroll saw, jigsaw, or a fret saw and a lot of patience.

Painted with water based acrylic paint.

1:1 Illustrator cut guides attached below. Font used is Komika Axis, which can be downloaded freely from the internets.

Step 1: Cut All the Pieces

This sign was cut with a laser cutter.

Step 2: Paint It!

Painted with water based acrylic paint.

Since i laser cut this, I etched a guide for the outer black line, which was very helpful while painting.

Step 3: Glue It Together!

Glued together using wood glue.

Step 4: Stick It to the Door

I used removable doble sided tape.

And there you have it! A unique door sign that looks awesome.

That's awesome! My friend is obsessed with Marvel and DC. Especially Batman. She can name any comic caracter and their back story. Maybe I'll do one for a birthday or something.

Hmm, nostalgia :-)
