Doing a painted title plaque was a last minute idea for my display board. I wanted originally just to do a simple print of the army title and stick it on the base. However I knew it would look cheap and unimpressive, even if you find the perfect font for it (which is Dark Crystal font, by the way).
I thought of this idea because I wanted something hand painted to title the whole board. So here is the process of how I went about doing it:
Then I gave the whole thing a quick coat of spray on matte varnish to protect it, and glued it to the display board.
