I started by beating up a 8" x4' pine board with a hammer and heavy chain, painted it with 2 coats of a dark green then printed my letters and transfered them to the board, I painted the letters in an off white then shaded them with a mix of the dark green and black. Once the paint was dry I beat up the board again then sanded to distress the whole thing. To finish I wiped the whole thing down with and aging solution.. I always have a mix of white vinegar and steel wool on hand to create a super quick aging process.
